As we all learned last Friday, raccoon crime sprees are all too common in our sleepy little nabe. Just when you think you're immune, you too might wake up to find the decapitated head of a raccoon peeking out of your silverware drawer. NO ONE IS SAFE.
However, we can't gloss over the fact that a raccoon *did* lose its life. And now its baby is motherless, and likely facing a lifetime of hardship and "yo momma is SOOO DEAD" jokes.
And I'm just a little confused because I didn't receive any emails over the weekend about any planned memorial services or candlelight vigils?? Anyone? Hello?
The murdered geese get 200 people (including police and local politicians) at a planned memorial, but the lone rebellious raccoon dies alone?
You disappoint me, Park Slope.
