The Chicago Sun-Times is, I think, creating a problem where one does not actually exist (the foreclosure cause might exist).
Or, if it does, then biologists everywhere should be flocking to Chicago to check out these orangutan-sized raccoons!
A woman in Chicago is concerned because raccoons have invaded her neighborhood. These are not just any raccoons, though. They are the size of "orangutangs". The correct spelling is orangutans. I know this may blow your mind, but they are not actually named after Tang.
Maybe all the raccoons look like Bandit here, a really fat raccoon who weighs more than 70 lbs. If they are, then sure, they are close in size to small orangutans. But generally speaking, raccoons aren't all that large. They certainly are not the size of orangutans.
I don't mess with raccoons. They are clever and have sharp nails. I once saw one cleave a plastic garbage bin in half. I said to myself, self, that's not an animal to mess with. I have lived by that credo ever since. Saved my life. I kid. But really, leave the raccoons alone.
