A 70-year-old Massachusetts woman is undergoing a series of rabies shots after she was recently attacked by a raccoon while she was hanging Christmas lights at her home.

Donna Sanginario, of Lancaster, said the attack happened at her home in Sterling Street on December 1. She estimates the raccoon that attacked her weighed about 45 pounds.

“I kept hearing this noise. I finally turned around and there was this raccoon,” Sanginario said. “It was staring into my eyes and it was huge.

“I went back and as soon as I did, he jumped right at me. It was mean and it wouldn’t stop screaming and I was screaming.”

Sanginario suffered deep bites, scrapes and bruises on both arms. She said the raccoon was clingy and wouldn’t let go for about five minutes.

“I kept walking around and once he got down he just jumped right back at me,” she said. “We were rolling on the ground and I was screaming, ‘Please, someone in this neighborhood help me!”

“Somehow I gave him a hard time and I just put him on his side, and I just kept crouching and squatting and squatting and distorting him. I heard bones breaking. My heart I was racing, I thought I was going to have a heart attack.”

Animal control officers said they did not put out a public warning for the raccoon, saying police searched for the animal but could not find it. So the raccoon cannot be tested for rabies and there is no evidence that it has rabies.

“In my opinion, he was just as cruel, he also had rabies,” Sanginario said.

Shauna Terkanian, Sanginario’s daughter, said she wanted to share her mother’s story to raise awareness in the neighborhood.

“They couldn’t find the panda,” Terkanian said. “I’m worried about all the kids in the neighborhood and the animals.”

Sanginario said she has two more shots left to get her rabies vaccine.
