    A raccoon walks into a bar: Woman charged...

    In follow-up to my original thread: Woman who brought raccoon to North Dakota bar is charged...


    Original thread: A racoon walks into a bar..... (thepoliticalforums.com)

    A woman who brought a wild raccoon into a North Dakota bar, which prompted state health officials to issue a warning about potential rabies exposure, is facing criminal charges. Erin Christensen, 38, of Maddock, is charged with misdemeanor counts of providing false information to law enforcement, tampering with physical evidence and unlawful possession of furbearers.

    Christensen was arrested last week after authorities found her and the raccoon by serving several search warrants in and around Maddock. Christensen said her family found the raccoon on the side of a road about three months ago and named it Rocky. She said they were nursing the animal back to health with plans to release it back into the wild.

    Itís illegal under North Dakota Board of Animal Health laws to keep a wild raccoon. Authorities euthanized the animal, and it tested negative for rabies.

    I've seen stuff like that back in the day. A pet skunk at the football game, what I'm quite certain was a fox pup in a bar and a racoon turned pet by a neighbor. We fed them ( racoons ) and even brought them inside with food trails. Skunk came in once. Flying Squirrel got inside and a family of weasels lived in a deer skin in the yard one year and we got to watch the quick little $#@!s chase squirrels.
    It's a bit weird because mom was a worrier and we knew about rabies.
    Had a skunk that wasn't acting right once so dad and a ranger went out and shot it.
    I guess I didn't realize how cool and special all tjhat was until it was gone.
