Raccoons Intrude White House

The White House was invaded this morning by unwelcomed guests: a group of raccoons that evaded capture by the National Park Service. "The idea of raccoons on the White House grounds give us great pause," spokesman Bill Burton said. The Washington Post reports that "one very large raccoon and several medium-sized raccoons" were seen on the grounds and have managed to avoid the "live traps" (with apples, cat food and peanut butter) set up to nab the animals.
