The Health Department has issued a warning to anyone considering hugging a raccoon in Central Park: Don't! Last week, two rabid raccoons were discovered in the park, bringing the city's total for the year to three, two more than in the past six years combined. So if you insist on hugging raccoons, just make sure they're not foaming at the mouth. [City Room/NYT]
