Officials say a small rainforest raccoon-like creature ran into a Florida apartment and bit a man after he opened the front door to head to work. The WPEC-TV reports the kinkajou bit his foot and scratched his leg but did not seriously injure him. A woman who witnessed the incident at the Lake Worth Beach, Florida apartment said it sounded “like a 300-pound man was tackling him in the kitchen.” Natalie Dulach said the furry mammal with sharp claws clung to the man’s leg as he fought to get it out. The man managed to lock the long-tailed animal in the bathroom until wildlife officers arrived. A Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission report said the kinkajou was taken to a wildlife facility. Officers didn’t say where it came from. ___ Information from: WPEC-TV, https://www.wpecnews12.com/ Copyright 2019 The Associated Press. All rights reserved.

In March, the school's Department of Public Safety and Security issued an alert telling students who were … [Read more...] about U-M installing locks inside classroom doors in Mason Hall

Police responding to the deadly mass shooting were unable to confront the gunman at one point because they didn’t have the key cards needed to open doors on the second floor. Whether the delay contributed to the death toll is unclear, but the episode illustrated how door-lock technology that is supposed to protect people can hamper police and rescue workers in an emergency. less FILE - In this June 1, 2019, file photo, a law enforcement official stands at an entrance to a municipal building that was the scene of a shooting the day before in Virginia Beach, Va.
