"Christensen was arrested last week after authorities found her and the raccoon by serving several search warrants in and around Maddock"

Next week on Law and Order: Best Dakota

The Raccoon's rival, it seems, had broken his dreams by stealing the girl of his fancy.  Her name was Magill and she called herself Lil but everyone knew her as Nancy.  Now she and her man, who called himself Dan, were in the next room at the hoedown.

I mean it should have been obvious to her that she was harboring a fugitive.

It's North Dakota. Not much going on there so the slightest thing can make the papers. Small town news can get vicious, too.

/ I do not care what Mrs. Dringle planted in her rhubarb garden, thanks.

Did it checked in to a room only to find Gideon's Bible?

It's spelled "racccoon".

Did he want that guy's leg?

I'm guessing it occurred somewhere in the Black mining hills there in Dakota.

Her name was McGill, she called herself Lil. But everyone knew her as Nancy.

"It's unfair and too much was done to detain an innocent raccoon," Christensen said in a Wednesday statement to the Bismarck Tribune. "They were not worried about the health of us if we had rabies or not. They were worried about finding and killing Rocky and putting me behind bars."

This sounds like the kind of person who talks while other people nod and listen, then make some excuse to get away.

She once brought a honeycomb and a jackass into a brothel.

unlawful possession of furbearers

I was arrested for that in the bedroom last night, iykwim.

And Rescue burst in and grinning a grin, he said, "Danny-boy, this is a showdown"
But Daniel was hot, he drew first and shot, and Rescue collapsed in the corner

Last weekend there was a kid that got run over and killed on purpose, possibly for political reasons. Maybe a half hour away from Maddock in McHenry.

"...unlawful possession of furbearers. "  I guess I'll cancel my reservations at Furpocalypse, just to be safe.

Alright. Now I need the rest of the story.

Actually, it was asked to leave the MAGA bar for wearing a mask, because freedom.

Works for me. You're an idiot, lady. Here's hoping you actually get a little bit of jail time, during which sense somehow comes to you and you realize just how badly this could've gone.

I really, really hate the "I did the stupid, potentially dangerous thing that's illegal here, and I successfully did it without killing or injuring myself or others, so I don't know why it's illegal" mentality.

I'm guessing the giving of false information and tampering with evidence is why this is going forward with a charge because otherwise that's just a little over the top for a small town in ND.  I grew up just the other side of the border and spent many a weekend night in ND.  Rocky is not the scariest thing I have seen in the bars in Grand Forks.

While I think it was unwise to expose the raccoon to potential drunken danger, I have a different take on the article than others here. I can't stand people who react to the mere existence of an animal with panic, declaring "Ack! It exists! Therefore, it MUST have rabies.
 
2022-09-22 11:02:06 PM  
Gawd, humans are such pussies when it comes to nature and wildlife. This was classic over-domesticated monkey panic. "OMG! A wild animal. It's probably gots da rabies." And a typically d-bag response from state game wardens, who are generally useless, especially in rural areas, where they never step out of their truck, and are drinking buddies with most of the poachers. Their solution to everything is to kill it. And the redneck solution is to run it over, just because.

The bar owner should have just kicked her out.

The only lab test for rabies is destructive of the brain tissue. Conducted during necropsy.
