Masked Marauders

Found via Countdown with Keith Olbermann:

A fierce group of raccoons in a west Olympia neighborhood has killed 10 cats, attacked a small dog and bitten at least one pet owner who had to get rabies shots, area residents say. Some people have taken to carrying pepper spray to ward off the masked marauders, and the woman who was bitten now carries an iron pipe when she goes outside at night. “It’s a new breed,” said Tamara Keeton, who with Kari Hall started a raccoon watch after an emotional neighborhood meeting drew 40 people. “They’re urban raccoons, and they’re not afraid.” One raccoon is especially large, “the biggest raccoon I’ve ever seen,” Tony Benjamins said. “He was a monster.”
