Elderly Connecticut woman bitten by raccoon while gardening

HAMDEN, Conn. (AP) - An 84-year-old Connecticut woman has received medical treatment after being bitten by a raccoon.

Hamden Police said Tuesday the unnamed woman's daughter contacted them on Monday afternoon, reporting her elderly mother had been "attacked" by a raccoon and bitten on the hand while gardening. Police say the daughter intervened and protected her mother from further injury.

The victim was taken to Yale-New Haven Hospital for medical treatment.

Both Hamden police officers and the Hamden Animal Control Division searched the area for the raccoon but were unable to locate it.

Police are urging residents not to feed raccoons; to keep garbage out of reach of the animals; not to leave pet food outside; and to keep compost secure.
