A pair of raccoons left a Washington woman with 16 puncture wounds and more than 100 scratches and lacerations on Monday. Michaela Lee was jogging with her dog near her Lakewood home when the animals attacked.
“During her jog on Monday, Lee saw two raccoons scale a tree,” according to a KOMONews.com report. “In a blink, her dog, Maddy, broke loose and chased after them. Lee followed, and quickly ran into trouble when the raccoons turned on her.”
“I was trying to run for the neighbor’s front door, but the raccoons were between my legs and tripped me,” she said. “I fell to the ground, and they were on me.”
The treatment for the wounds was almost as bad as the actual attack, according to Lee.
“I had to get an injection in every single puncture wound,” she said. “And the only ones that were numbed were the ones that were so opened up they had to be stapled together.”
