From the police log of today’s Salem News:
>A raccoon with a mayonnaise jar stuck on its head was reported at the corner of Lothrop and Dane streets at 10:04 p.m. Police dislodged the jar and sent the animal on its way.
Ha! And this is just a couple blocks from my house. Interesting image of the little animal with a Cain’s (or
whatever brand, take your pick) jar on its head.
True story: a couple years back, a raccoon paid a visit to my back porch. It was freaking out a neighbor’s cat. After a minute or so, the raccoon ran off. A week or two later, the cat wandered into my own apartment...and spotted a foot-tall raccoon doll someone had given me, which was on the floor.
The fraidy cat slowly backed away from it :)
ha—did anyone see the comment someone put on the Salem News page?
>>The raccoon story sounds like a cover up. I think it actually was one of our Beacon Hill elected officials.
by the way this took place at night; I work nights (don’t
all raccoons?) so I wasn’t around when it happened. And note that it was a mayo jar—as Howie said the other day, it’s
pronounced “may-naise”—at least that’s how he says it.
