PARK SLOPE - A local city councilwoman is introducing new legislation that could help Brooklyn residents deal with a growing raccoon problem.

Councilwoman Sarah Gonzalez says the proposed law would require the city's health department to trap and humanely release raccoons.

The Department of Health and Mental Hygiene tells News 12 Brooklyn they can't comment on pending legislation, but it will provide tips to residents who need to get a raccoon out of their home and stop it from returning.
