SPCA Offers big reward to catch the person who gunned down raccoon

Not the actual raccoon but you get the idea

The animal lovers over at the Peninsula Humane Society are offering a $1,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the animal-hater who shot a raccoon in South San Francisco over the weekend.

The SPCA got a call Sunday morning from a concerned resident who spotted the wild mammal looking dazed and resting its head on a curb near the 700 block of Palm Avenue. The raccoon was rushed to the wildlife center in Burlingame where it was euthanized.

Vets gave the raccoon a sedative and took a closer look before noting she had an injury on her forehead with somewhat fresh blood on it. There was also a fragment of bone that originally looked like a tooth fragment. Sadly, the raccoon was put to sleep after doctors evaluated her behavior and determined time was not on her side.

Vets X-rayed the raccoon after she was put down; the images clearly showed lead pellets — one in the center of the brain and one in the rear, between the hips.

Anyone with information that could help PHS/SPCA Cruelty Investigators in this case should call (650) 340-7022, ext. 384.

On Sunday, California bore the brunt of what meteorologists referred to as a bomb cyclone and an atmospheric river, a convergence of storms that brought more than half a foot of rain to parts of the Bay Area, along with high winds, concerns about flash floods and the potential for heavy snow in the Sierra Nevada. Much of the Bay Area was under a flash flood watch on Sunday, with the National Weather Service warning of the potential for mudslides across the region. (NOAA via The New York Times)
