Thank You, Verona Police


Share post:

Mostly, journalists report the news. Sometimes, however, we are the news. So when you read in the next police blotter that the Verona Police Department responded to a call about a raccoon in a house, you will know that it was mine.

The dispatcher got Montclair Animal Control to my house quickly, and Officer John Lecreux and the animal control officer deftly removed one of the largest raccoons I have ever seen–in or out of captivity–and returned it to a more appropriate domicile outside.

Thanks, Verona Police.
