A sure bet these incidents will make it to the OPP’s list of most exasperating 9-1-1 calls.
Oxford County OPP received an emergency call Saturday morning after a raccoon was observed walking down the side of the road.
And it wasn’t the first time, as a police spokesman says they are being inundated with calls from people spotting raccoons during the day.
Constable Ed Sanchuk says there’s no need to contact 9-1-1 and if homeowners have issues with raccoons on their property, they need to call a private animal removal service.
