Jesus Take the Wheel: 74 Year Old Woman gets Mauled by a Pack of Raccoons…

- By Bossip Staff

A 74 year-old- Florida woman was attacked by a pack of raccoons over the weekend.  Apparently, she was trying to shoooo them off her lawn and they got gangsta with her.

Shocked by the initial attack, Gretchen Whittead fell to the floor where she was enveloped by five raccoons that scratched her up something terrible.  According to reports, she was bitten and scratched from her face and chest, all the way down through the legs where apparent flesh was visible.  Raccoons are known to attack when it comes to food, but this case is rare since there was no real harm to make the animals feel threatened.

Lakeland police are now on a wild hunt to capture as many raccoons as possible by placing traps around town.  They have warned residents of the potential threat and want people’s families to be safe.

Who knew raccoons could gang attack someone?
