Pregnant raccoon terrorizing uptown Hoboken

5/26/2010:

Dogs, children NOT safe around raccoons!

You might think that spotting a wild animal in Hoboken is cute – but don’t mess around with raccoons! Especially pregnant ones!

11th Street crossing guard Margaret O’Brien mentioned that several uptown residents have noticed a large raccoon running around the yards and streets in the area of 11th to 12th and Washington, Hudson, and Bloomfield Streets. She said the Health Department has been contacted. If you see this raccoon – send your pics in!

Speaking of “unwanted” animals…

Spotted this stern warning from a resident at 13th and Bloomfield Streets. Because, you need to be reminded that leaving food on the ground “attracks” rodents!

Regarding the title of this window, raccoons may be unwanted but they are not rodents… they are of order Carnivora not order Rodentia.

There could be a skunk in town. There’s lots of wilderness for varmints between the light rail track and the heights. Don’t mess with a pregnant raccoon! Keep the kiddies away from those cute little baby geese, too. Mama goose can snap fingers off.

Ick. My friend used to tell me that our street smelled like skunk, too. I don’t even want to imagine…

In the meantime, poor, poor, pregnant raccoon. I hope it doesn’t get run over by a car 😐 .[quote comment=”192873″]Who knows, maybe it was my imagination but a few weeks ago I thought I caught a whiff of ….skunk![/quote]
