Steve Cunningham writing -- This innocent looking creature was anything but! She removed a large chunk of Dick Carlton's (Scott's dad) hand trying not to get caught. While trying to swat the treed animal off a branch, Dick received a lightning-fast retaliatory bite. Not to be outdone, Dick swatted the beast into the water anyway. The commotion drew a cast of dozens of campers armed with flashlights and a garbage container to the shoreline. Knowing that the crowded shore was not an option for escape, the swimming raccoon tired enough to be caught in a blanket and spent the night in the garbage container where it slept off the ordeal. Does anyone know if Dick had to get shots? Stitches?
