Raccoon attacks baby and drags her out of bed in Philadelphia, mom says
Last Updated Dec 22, 2017 8:54 AM EST
PHILADELPHIA — A baby had to undergo surgery after being attacked by a raccoon inside a North Philadelphia home earlier this week. CBS Philadelphia reports that four-month-old Journi Black is on a long road to recovery after a raccoon attacked her inside a home on the 2100 block of North 22nd Street on Wednesday night.
"It's just ridiculous," said Samuel Black, the girl's father. "My daughter could have lost her life."

Journi Black underwent surgery at St. Christopher's Hospital for Children after being attacked by a raccoon. CBS Philadelphia
Animal control officers set a trap for the raccoon to prevent this from happening again. Doctors told the family it will take at least a year for the baby to fully recover.
"My daughter was laying on the bed sleeping and I went to take my son to the bathroom. We heard a sound upstairs and we see a raccoon run down the steps," said Ashley Rodgers, the child's mother. "When I finally got to her, she was laying on the floor so it had dragged her off the bed, across the room, and she was bleeding and crying and her whole face was red."
It's been mere days since Rodgers moved into the home with her daughter and 6-year-old son, Jordan. Other tenants also reportedly rent rooms there, though no one inside would come to the door or speak on-camera.
A spokeswoman for the city's Licenses and Inspections Department tells Eyewitness News the homeowner, who purchased the property in May, does not have a rental license and that if he is renting rooms, he is doing so illegally.
"It needs to be shut down. Everybody needs to leave out of there," Rodgers said.
Rodgers says she contacted her landlord after the first raccoon sighting earlier in the evening, something neighbors say is common, especially with trash in the area.
"It's terrible around here with these raccoons, yes it is," said Barbara Butler.
Rodgers says her landlord told her he had chased the raccoon out. But after the raccoon attacked the baby, the landlord rushed her to the hospital. The family says it intends to pursue legal action.
"It is his responsibility. There's no reason an animal should have gotten into the house with minors," Black said.
CBS Philadelphia reached out to that landlord; he first hung up on us then called back to say everything has been resolved and to contact his lawyer. However, he would not provide his attorney's name or number. Meantime, the baby is still in recovery at St. Christopher's Hospital and has had her rabies shots.

Here we go again, get ready for another fight!
S179 was brought up in the Environment and Energy Committee. This bill is the same wording as last years bill S2750 and is in the same committee just under a different number. This bill will eliminate all trapping except mice and rats in your house (good luck finding a market for them). We need everyone to write, email and call the committee members and tell them you oppose this bill. If you email please also BCC to njfedtrap@gmail.com so we can keep a count how many emailed so they cant say no one opposed the bill. Below is the 5 members of the committee you need to contact and also the wording of Bill S179.

Hope everyone is having a great trapping season and new year.

Got this reply:
Thank you for contacting me regarding SCR11, S2750, and A4406. I wanted to let you know that these bills were part of the previous legislative session (2016-2017) which concluded on January 8, 2018. I have had my staff check the records of bills that were re-introduced for consideration during the current legislative session (2018-2019) which began on January 9, 2018. The bills you have referenced were not reintroduced in any manner; currently there are no bills or resolutions concerning animal traps. I hope you find this information useful. Please continue to voice your opinions and concerns on legislation.

Regards,

Sorry guys. I feel bad for you. NJ is my destination for striper fishing and easy beach access. But it is a police state and I am always glad to leave. C'mon over here to PA.
