They are known for washing their hands, too.

If they live on Pond Street then more than likely they are complaining.

Reported as a "rodent sighting." Someone's confused.

I don't think they have a "sorta bear, kinda panda" box on the list.

I'm pretty familiar with BOS:311 - my husband jokes that I broke down and upgraded to a smartphone when they rolled out the app. They do have "other," though.

... probably sensible to reserve "Other" for less off-the-shelf sightings - Cthulhu rising from the depths of R'lyeh and whatnot.

Not very big for racoons though. Probably adolescents.

Another big one has been hanging out on my back porch again. I live on the 3rd floor; I don't keep garbage there so I've wondered what the hell they are coming up here for. However some of my neighbors are not so responsible with disposal of their trash so I guess the raccoons feel comfy climbing all around here. I usually just shoo them away with my broom. But some of those motherfuckers will look at you like you're crazy. I get mad - like you fucker, you don't pay rent here, get the fuck on. But I am nervous doing that because I don't want to get bitten so I stay back while swinging the broom...shit I don't want rabies.
