Herman Goering... raccoons... German wine harvets... Is this true? You can never tell on the internet sometimes...

NationalPost
"Germany is stepping up its battle against "Nazi" raccoons after they ruined much of this year's wine harvest, the Web site Ananova reported yesterday. The animals were released into the countryside in 1934 under the orders of Hermann Goering. They have since become a health hazard, rummaging through garbage cans and invading attics and basements.

Now, they are threatening farmers. "Raccoons wiped out almost the entire harvest in a matter of days," said Werner Kothe, who has a vineyard in Brandenburg. Local officials have hired bounty hunters to cull raccoons, with 3,471 being killed last year."
