Seeing children suffering is one of the worst things in the world, and these pitcures of a little girl who was attacked by a raccoon are particularly upsetting.
These photos are difficult to look at, but the family wants people to see them anyway and understand the terrible thing that happened to their baby daughter Jourini.
The family says that the four-month-old was attacked by a racoon who tried to drag the little girl from her bed, reports Fox 29.
Warning: The photos in this article may be upsetting to some readers.
The attack happened between 10 and 11 pm on Wednesday night. The girl’s mom, Ashley Rodgers, was taking her 6 year old to the bathroom.
When she went back to the baby’s room, she was met by a horrifying scene and was gripped with panic.
“She was laying on the floor— across the room — blood all over her face and her pjs,” the mom told the news channel.
“I thought it was a nightmare when I heard over the phone. My heart dropped. I didn’t know what to say, what to think,” dad Samuel Black tells Fox 29.
AWFUL: A 4-month-old baby girl was attacked by a raccoon in a North Philadelphia apartment, according to her family. The little girl was dragged from her bed by the animal and needed 65 stitches.
The mom says that the racoon dragged the girl from her bed and across the floor. She was later driven to the emergency room at St. Christophers Hospital in Philadelphia. According to the family she needed 65 stitches.
Other neighbors in the building have previously complained about raccoons ravaging the building. According to Fox 29, the property owner owes a large sum of back tax payments, but has made a payment plan. It’s also clear that the private owner who owns the building is not licensed to rent his apartments.
Now the police are looking for the property owner, who has not yet answered attempts to reach him by phone. On Thursday, the area was examined by animal control, Fox reports 29.
