"Gaze in Central Park"

22 raccoons gather on a path near the southeastern edge of Central Park in Manhattan. While city officials warn people to stay away, this group of critters has drawn in a nocturnal crowd of tourists. Although the animals have a long history of rabies, many passing visitors want to pet the wild animals, coaxing them into the open with coos and treats.
