Two masked bandits - in the form of hooligan raccoons - marked the end of Halloween by attacking an animatronic witch on a couple's porch.
Michael Collins, 37, and his wife Jessica Curtis, 32, were at home when they heard their dogs barking at a mystery noise outside.
Jessica decided to look and found a spooky sight - their animatronic witch was now lying "dead" on their porch, with not a suspect in sight.
She returned inside, checked their camera footage and woke Michael to show him the evidence.
The video shows the assailants teaming up to pull the witch, who was placed on a rocking chair, to the ground before furiously clambering over and biting it.
Photographer Jessica and Michael, an electrician from Patchogue, New York, USA, both described their shock at watching the wild animals destroy their decorations.
Michael said: “Now I'm scared that they might attack a real human next.
“Fortunately, the witch lives to haunt another year. However, she's a little apprehensive to start singing her lullaby to the local wildlife.”
This video was filmed in November 2021.
