BURLINGTON, Vt. (AP) -- Police in Vermont say a woman who might have been angry about a dead raccoon left on a street took its bloody carcass to City Hall and angrily slammed it against the building's doors.

Burlington police say the woman left the raccoon's body outside City Hall before walking off one morning two weeks ago.

Witnesses have told the Burlington Free Press the animal might have been hit on a nearby street and that the woman might have been upset no one from the city had come to collect it.

Police say the woman faces a possible vandalism charge. They also say her actions created a public health hazard.

They're seeking the public's help in identifying the woman and have released a description and surveillance photo of her.
