Watch Out Ohio—Police Are Investigating Reports Of 'Zombie' Raccoons

By Collin Gossel

Here are two words which strike fear into the heart of any sane person: zombie and raccoon. If one were to put these words together, humanity would have discovered a new, terrifying level of danger which, frankly, we may not survive. In Youngstown, Ohio, that nightmare has become reality. 

Over the last three weeks, police have received over 36 calls about "zombie raccoon" sightings.

The raccoons are wandering up to humans during the daytime, displaying none of the fear associated with mankind and not responding to sounds trying to scare them away. They then stand up on their hind legs, snarling and slobbering, before falling over backwards.
