I had seen something sitting in the gutter. At first, I thought it was just a piece of rubbish. Then I saw it move, ‘could it be the wind?’ I thought. I was wrong. It turned and looked at me so I went towards it. I knew it was the wrong thing to do but I still did it. I went to pick it up and it turned its face at me and I saw it was a raccoon with rabies. I dropped it immediately. I couldn’t believe I just did that! ‘Why would I do that?’ I asked myself.
