Raccoons Attack Another Resident in Arlington Neighborhood

Raccoons have attacked and bitten a man in an Arlington, Virginia, neighborhood just days after a woman was attacked in the same area.

Greg Purcell, who lives in the Fairlington neighborhood, said he was walking out of his front door early Wednesday morning when two raccoons leaped onto his legs.

"I was stepping out onto my porch to put on sun lotion spray and was just looking at the bottle of spray when all of a sudden the raccoons were, two of them, were chomping on my leg and scratching and clawing me and basically I was kind of stunned and saying, 'What's going on?'" Purcell told News4.

"I didn't really know what it was at first but I just knew something was biting me and clawing at me," he said.

Simple solution but when dealing with HOA idiots you have to first form a commission to do a study, wait for the next board meeting who then study the study, next meeting recommendations are put up, more study, ... in the mean time you have gangs of raccoons terrorizing the residents when all you need is secure trash cans!

Or a .410 shotgun.

Or an air rifle. Don't want to upset the DC tree huggers.

If you think the trash is drawing them, Put a little bleach in each bag before closing the bag. Not much is needed as the fumes will deter them and also will not harm them.
