Presence of raccoon in Reykjanes still a mystery
The Icelandic Food and Veterinary authority have sent the carcass of the raccoon killed in Hafnir in Reykjanes earlier this week for dissection to the University of Iceland.
There, the raccoon will be investigated for any contagious diseases which it may have brought to the country. A dog which was in contact with the raccoon is in quarantine.
How the raccoon got to Iceland remains a mystery. Import of raccoons to Iceland is totally illegal, says a statement from the authority.
