questionshave you seen the latest extreme sport? raccoon…


I'd toss a coon to save my dog. just sayin...


@nmchapma: That would be justifiable. Doing minimal harm in defense of oneself or another usually is.


On the other hand, it's a raccoon. Disease ridden vermin of the highest order. The only things they have going for them are they're cute (somewhat debatable) and their shenanigans are often hilarious. If they looked like rats they'd be killed without a second thought. I remember sitting in on a necropsy on a raccoon after a little girl went blind after playing in a sandbox in a park and there were so many worms in its guts it looked like it was still alive. Actually, every one we opened up was just packed with parasites. Not to mention the rabies.


They may look cute, but they are nothing but trouble. Anyone who has had them on his/her property knows what I am talking about. I don't think the guy in the video did anything wrong (protecting his dog), and I think he is very lucky he didn't get bit himself.
