So we had an unexpected visit from Animal Control today. Officer Don Griess stopped by to check out the area, apparently he met with our neighbors yesterday. We learned some interesting stuff.
1> It's illegal for our neighbors to run their clothes washer outside from a hose and dump the waste water out into the street. (Yes, they actually do this.)
2> 90% of the raccoons, red foxes, possums and bats in the area are turning up rabid.
I had no idea that rabies was so bad in the area. So just an FYI from Don and the kind folks at Animal Control: stay away from the critters. Especially if you see them in the daytime... these fellas are supposed to be nocturnal, and if they're out and about in the day... they're really sick.
btw: Don told us about this video someone in Covington made of him catching a beaver on the banks of the Ohio, down near Duveneck Park.
Damn that's a big beaver.
Towards the end you can see it was so heavy it broke the pole.
DH Addendum: This is Don's ringtone on his cell.
