PITTSBURGH (KDKA) – A Pittsburgh woman says she had a serious raccoon problem in her home, and her landlord wouldn’t do anything about it for a year.
She reached out to KDKA’s Marty Griffin for help.
WATCH: Raccoons In One Pittsburgh Family’s Ceiling
Ebony Davenport said her Hill District Home became infested with raccoons.
“The raccoons fight in the ceiling,” says Davenport.
Davenport says waste from the raccoons made her son ill.
She showed Griffin medical records suggesting he son had to have medical treatment as a result of waste from the raccoons.
“A third world parasite that came from inside the house,” says Davenport.
Marty reached out to landlord V.J. Jain who claims the property has always been in excellent condition.
The landlord claims he only found out about the problem with the Davenport property a few days ago.
Meantime, within hours of his conversation with Marty Griffin the landlord had a crew of men at the Hill District property.
Before our crew left the scene: holes in ceiling were patched, the raccoons removed, and a lot of work was taken care of.
Davenport already moved her family out of the home, she says she doesn’t not know if she will return.
The Allegheny County Health Department was also sent to the home to conduct a complete inspection.
