Raccoons Attack
Contest Directions: "So called 'urban raccoons' attack the City of Olympia in Washington. So far they killed 10 cats, have bitten one dog, and one pet owner (not necessarily in that order). Residents arm themselves against raccoon attacks." You probably read about these raccoons recently in The New York Times, a daily newspaper with a circulation of 18 trillion. Of course you don't believe a word of it. You think publications like The New York Times make everything up. So did I, and when I first saw their story, for the moment I thought I was reading the scenario to Martin Scorsese's "Gangs of New York". Yet, The New York Times and every other major newspaper claims that 'urban raccoons are for real and they are not afraid'. Newspapers don't actually tell you there are 23,520,102, 370,754,235,929 raccoons in Washington, who are starting a guerrilla war, but they let you be the detective and put two and two together. That and the fact that you should stay a way from Olympia, Washington for the time being. Because if there's anything raccoons like to do is to have their way with your pets, steal your credit cards, and torture you with the most horrible country music. I might have the wrong list here. Anyhow, you've gotta remember that every raccoon who attacks Washingtonian is a friend of a man has a short life span. Keeping that in mind I think we should try the approach which proved to work in the past. You catch all male raccoons in Washington, sterilize them and drop them from airplanes onto the affected area, where they mate with the females, who don't get pregnant, and there you are. That, or catch all the female raccoons and put them on pills. Until then we need to help The New York Times (and other newspapers) with the pictures of these raccoons which they failed to publish in their stories. Thus, in this contest you are asked to photoshop 'raccoons behaving badly' - meaning raccoons causing a threat, or problems to humans.

This contest is fueled by the following news: Olympia, Washington residents -- and their pet cats -- are under siege. A vicious band of raccoons has taken on the city, killing ten cats, attacking a dog and at least one pet owner who ended up getting rabies shors. The woman who was attacked by the racoon band now carries an iron pipe when she goes out of doors. Others are carrying pepper spray to ward off the fierce coons. In fact, a neighborhood racoon watch has been created, the initial meeting drawing a remarkable 40 people. One of the primary goals of the group is to get people to stop feeding the racoons and to keep food products -- including pet food -- inside. The woman who was attacked indicated that she and her neighbors used to love racoons. But, now things have changed. They feel the racoons went nuts. Indeed, in one case a group of five racoons attempted to carry off a dog -- the dog managing to excape and survive the attack. Traps are not that helpful in catching racoons because the animals teach their young how to avoid traps.
