Rabid Raccoons In Central Park: An Investigative Report

Produced by HuffPost Eyes&Ears Citizen Journalism Unit in collaboration with Betsy West's Storytelling Class at the Columbia Journalism School.

The New York City Health Department has identified 81 cases of raccoons with rabies in Manhattan in the first three months of the year. The majority of the sightings have been from 110 and 68th St in Central Park. Between 2003 to 2008 there was just one rabid raccoon found in Manhattan.

Bradley Gallo and Kiran Moodley went on a mission to find some rabid raccoons. On the way, they met Michael J Fox. This is their story.
