Ezra James – an 88 year old gentleman who is originally from Jamaica was recently arrested in the US state of Florida after taking matters into his own hands with a pesky raccoon.

Police in the Sunshine State say James was arrested after he trapped the animal and burned it alive because it ate his mangoes.

While speaking with WKMG-TV, James said he threw gasoline on the raccoon and set it on fire.

James also said he was afraid the raccoon might give him rabies.

The elderly man was confronted by lawmen after they were summoned by a neighbour who called 911.

Lawmen reportedly shot and killed the burning raccoon in order to abruptly end its misery.
