Screaming man with dead raccoon in Mukilteo

MUKILTEO (AP) — Someone called 911 to report a screaming man dragging an animal along a highway in Mukilteo.

When officers arrived Thursday they found a dead raccoon on a leash.

The Mukilteo police blotter says the man placed marshmallows around the animal and declared it a hazmat or hazardous materials zone.

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