FYI: There have been recent cases of rabid raccoons in Sudbury. I have seen a (perhaps older) raccoon not too far from the Lincoln Library a few times recently who has a limp, is somewhat hunched & thin and moves slowly. I do not know how far raccoons range--not sure if the one I saw could be the same creature as mentioned. Take extreme care if you encounter a rabid animal as in the late stages they can attack and going through the required rabies shots is not fun.
With the extended hot and dry weather, some wildlife are acting outside of typical norms. For instance I have been surprised to see field mice running around during the daytime and they are typically nocturnal.
The Lincoln police have previously informed me that the animal control person does not deal with wildlife, though I believe the police inform her when residents report local incidents of concern.
