This is definitely not your typical animal control response:
An upstate New York police department is under fire after video surfaced of officers targeting a raccoon with their squad car — claiming the doomed critter died as “humanely as possible.”
A video posted to Facebook by Bryanna Catucci shows two vehicles — including a marked Coeymans police SUV — driving directly at the animal several times Monday in the parking lot of a shopping plaza in Ravena, according to Catucci.
“Leaving the grocery store to find 2 cops charging at a raccoon in a car for 15 minutes until dead:/ you would think if it had rabies they would shoot him instead of torturing. Sad day,” Catucci wrote.
