Screaming man found with dead raccoon in Mukilteo

MUKILTEO — A dead raccoon was taken into police custody last week after officers found a man dragging the animal along the Mukilteo Speedway.

Someone called 911 on Thursday to report the man screaming, according to the Mukilteo police blotter.

Officers found the man walking, dragging the dead raccoon on a leash.

When they approached the man, he placed marshmallows around the animal and declared it a “haz mat” or hazardous materials zone.

The raccoon was taken to a local shelter for disposal. The man was last seen getting on the bus.
