Residents frustrated by raccoon concerns


The people appointed into office, people who  are paid to do a job that they are paid well to do

and have the very best insurance to do their job,

because, we the people, want them to do their jobs?

In Central Florida one must guess that two out of three is a good thing?

Well, not if two of the three we speak about are

making a lot of money and having the very best insurance available?

Because the third thing that, we the people demand, is

doing the jobs assigned to the people making all of that money with great insurance!

If you do not know what your job is or how to do your job, why and who elected you?

Leesburg resident reporting a possible rabid raccoon

Residents frustrated by raccoon concerns

With a Leesburg rabies alert in effect for the next 60 days, at least two local residents say they got the runaround Tuesday after finding a sick raccoon staggering around their Winona Avenue neighborhood.

“I’ve been calling people telling them I think I have a rabid raccoon in my yard that is acting crazy, laying down, then getting up and wandering around and then falling back over,” said Gene Elton, who made calls to city and county officials, Lake County Health Department, animal control services and even the police department.

Neighbor John Leavers reported the same thing.

“They don’t want to do anything about it,” he said. “I thought the city of Leesburg would be interested in this, since there has been a rabies alert, but animal control said they only deal with domestic animals and the police department said ‘that’s not what we do.’ Then they gave the number of two private places that I could pay to have it taken care of. What’s the purpose of city government if not to take care of public safety?”
