Zombie Raccoons Are Terrorizing This One Ohio Town And It’s Downright Terrifying

Could this be a case of an animal zombie apocalypse of the raccoon kind? If it weren’t so concerning, it would be actually funny. Imagine “zombie-like” raccoons stumbling around on their hind legs, baring their teeth and acting aggressively, and then tipping over…even in the daytime. Scary? The people in Youngstown, Ohio, think so.

Distemper is described as a viral disease, and symptoms may include muscle twitches, seizures, salivation, and bizarre jaw movements. In other words…zombie-like. If it is determined to be the culprit, the affected raccoons will have to be captured and put down. But rest assured, they aren’t searching for any brain food.
