Wildlife and public places are never a good combination, are they?

In Covington, Tennessee, it was a normal morning at Walmart. But then, as WMC reports, things became hectic when a raccoon decided that it wanted to go shopping inside the store! People certainly were worried, and many patrons were worried. Animal control was called of course, but the question remained, what about the operations of the Walmart?

Well, the store had to be closed down while animal control was called in to capture the raccoon. The reason the store had to close down was for customer safety in case the animal attacked. Which was a great call by Walmart, in this young man's opinion.

This makes me both happy and worried that I've never been in a situation where a live animal invades a store. I wouldn't know what to do!
