June 20, 2014

PAWTUCKET—A Central Avenue family's Chihuahua was viciously attacked by a raccoon that Animal Control officials believe may be rabid, and residents of that area are being asked to take precautions and be vigilant.
Animal Control Director John Holmes said that on Thursday at around 1 p.m., a family of four, including a young child, were in the backyard of their home at 250 Central Ave. with their dog when they were startled by a noise. A raccoon suddenly jumped at their dog and began to attack it.
