Mom kills rabid raccoon with her hands when it attacks her baby
Don’t mess with with Mom. Usually mild-mannered mother and schoolteacher Anna Avery of Beach Lake, PA said she became adrenaline-charged after seeing a rabid raccoon jump on her two-year-old son, Wyatt, and start biting him. “I ran over and grabbed the thing by its mouth and yanked it off of him,” Avery said. “My hand was in the thing’s mouth the whole time. I didn’t know what else to do, so I got on top of it with my fingers still in its mouth and I smothered it. I didn’t really think about it. I just did it.” The Wayne Independent.
