World Record Holding (75lb) Raccoon (Bandit) Dead
<snip>

PALMERTON, Pa. -- What was billed as the world's heaviest raccoon has died.

Bandit tipped the scales at nearly 75 pounds -- three times the average for his breed.

He'd been the pet of Deborah Klitsch of Palmerton, Pennsylvania.

Bandit was born with a bad thyroid gland. When he hit 52 and a half pounds in 1999, his girth garnered him a spot in Guinness Book of World Records.

The junk-food crazed raccoon hunted down chips and cheese curls, Froot Loops and french fries. He was a regular at Ice Cream World, where he would sit in Klitsch's SUV, hold a cup of blue raspberry Slush with his paws and drink it through a straw.
