A teenager is blind in one eye and an infant brain damaged after contracting raccoon roundworm. They’re both from Brooklyn, so I’m going to have to give up stacking raccoon feces into piles and quit using feces as sprinkles on cupcakes.
Babies are prone to eating things they’re not supposed to, but I haven’t seen a raccoon in the two years I’ve lived here. Where did this baby find the scat? The teenager apparently eating feces is like the ten year old who got roofied from eating Aquadots; they were both old enough to know what’s edible and what’s not.
