‘Zombie-like’ raccoons baring their teeth, walking on hind legs, invade Ohio town

The normally nocturnal raccoons have been spotted exhibiting zombie-like symptoms during the day

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (INTELLIHUB) — Police say that they have received a number of calls from local residents who say they have been seeing raccoons display unusual zombie-like behavior in recent weeks.

“He would stand up on his hind legs which I had never seen a racoon do before and he would show his teeth and then he would fall over backwards and go into almost like a comatose condition,” one local man explained to KTNV Channel 13.

Apparently, a good number of the calls have came in during the daytime despite the fact that raccoons are nocturnal.

A virus may be to blame, one expert warns.
