Somerset: Missy The Missing Raccoon
Missy, an 18 month old raccoon, has managed to escape from a small zoo in Somerset - thanks to recent flooding.
The ground at her enclosure at Tropiquaria in Washford had become so soft it allowed Missy to dig her way out.
Chris Moiser, zoological director at Tropiquaria says "The sad thing is that we have had raccoons in that enclosure for two years with no trouble whatsoever"
"It is only with the recent flooding that the ground has softened sufficiently for her to dig out. We have had a number of problems with the recent flooding and have had to evacuate some animals from outside enclosures, but we really thought that the raccoons were safe. Missy will not have any problems in surviving in the English climate but it does worry us that she is out.''
Chris has also revealed Missy's male partner, six-year-old Rocky, had been left extremely upset by her departure. He's told Heart Rocky is wanting more fuss and even comfort eating.
Chris is asking people not to approach Missy. "If you see her, could you please contact me on 07751 363 198 and we will be out for her straightaway. Do not try and handle her as she may bite - just observe her from a distance. If she does enter an outbuilding, if possible do lock her in."
Ozzy, a local police dog in training, has decided to share his diary with people. Read his story so far!
A Devon mum who's daughter's was hit in the face by a firework tells Heart there should only be organised displays.
This is a 26 year old man from Cornwall on the night he was later attacked in Somerset and left with life changing injuries.
