Yesterday morning, there was a rabid, sick or injured raccoon under my neighbor's truck. It made its way across the street and I called the City (311 and the rapid Response #) and tried to keep it from getting away. After about half an hour it went past me and crawled under the porch at Russell's house. I wasn't going to get right in its face in case it was rabid. So 2 City trucks showed up but they cannot damage property to get at it so left saying Russell should call 311 for a trap. The animal control people said that since it wasn't agressive, it was either injured or had distemper which will wipe out a whole colony. So be on the lookout for other raccoons.
While I was walking up and down trying to keep the little guy corralled, I noticed the huge amount of dog poop on the parkway and in the street -- left by the dog from 3222 Culver. I pointed it out to the Animal Control people who told me that virtually all of them have already given tickets to this address. So I don't know what else can be done. I am tempted to scoop it all up and put it on their porch. I know all of the neighbors are tired of it with one of them threatening to shoot the dog.
