Raccoon’s freedom costs San Francisco carpenter his job


SAN FRANCISCO – A carpenter has been fired for freeing a raccoon that had been trapped by exterminators at the San Francisco construction site where he worked.

Todd Sutton tells the San Francisco Chronicle that he came to work one morning in late February and saw the animal inside a trap.

The builders had hired professional trappers to have the critter — which was blamed for damage at the $610 million project — removed and euthanized.

But the 49-year-old carpenter says he put the animal in his truck and released it in a nearby grassy area, after getting guidance from animal control officers.

His employer told the newspaper the move amounted to theft, because Sutton took something from the site that didn’t belong to him.

Sutton has hired an attorney.

The man accused of driving a souped-up Mustang that killed two spectators during a Los Angeles street race has been charged with two counts of murder.

Prosecutors say 21-year-old Henry Gevorgyan was charged Tuesday.

Authorities say his Ford Mustang went out of control during an illegal race Feb. 25 in the Chatsworth section of the San Fernando Valley.

The car veered right and crashed into a crowd on the sidewalk. Twenty-six-year-old Eric Siguenza and 50-year-old Wilson Thomas Wong died, and a third man was seriously injured.

The driver fled, but Gevorgyan turned himself in Saturday night and remains jailed with bail set at $2 million.

He could face 33 years to life in prison if convicted.
