raccoon attack leaves 4-month-old with 65 stitches

PHILADELPHIA

A raccoon attacked a 4-month-old baby in Philadelphia, clawing the little girl’s face and causing injuries that could take up to a year to completely heal.

The baby was dragged from her bed by the nocturnal mammal, the family told WXTF.

“I thought it was a nightmare when I heard over the phone. My heart dropped. I didn’t know what to say, what to think,” the girl’s father, Samuel Black, told WXTF.

That must have been a pretty big racoon to drag a baby out of it's bed.
