Police are looking for two men who intentionally drove into a group of raccoons behind the Safeway, killing two, reports the Mercury News:

A large group of raccoons — a "gaze" — congregates at the Safeway at night and in the early morning, he said. They are attracted to the grocery store’s dumpsters, he said, and some employees apparently feed the animals.

"It seems to be a raccoon haven there," O’Malley said. "It’s their version of a McDonald’s."

The car left two dead raccoons behind. O’Malley said other animals may have been injured before retreating.

Witnesses got the car’s license plate numbers and the complaint has been referred to another agency.
