New York: An American football player ended up killing a raccoon after the furry animal bit him while he attempted to click a selfie with the animal.
Jack Gangwish, 21, tried to take a photo of himself with a raccoon but it attacked him, biting him in the calf, the Lincoln Journal-Star reported.
"Guys.. I got bit by a raccoon.. It just looked so soft and friendly, I couldn't help it," Gangwish tweeted (tweets now deleted).
He then grabbed a crescent wrench to subdue the raccoon, but unfortunately for the raccoon, "it was death by crescent wrench," Gangwish was quoted as saying.
Gangwish carried the animal carcass to get it tested for rabies.
