If hides were worth more people be there to get em right away. People eat them also. Would I want a coon strolling around my yard? No he be dead,had to shoot one a few years ago and burn him up as on road middle of a bright day,skinny scrawny and no fear so Rabies scare easier to put em down than let someone get bit and believe me they bite hard we had wild coon we used for dog training but one was very gentle and let us hold him pet him and ignored dogs.Another we had rip the crap outta ya.

If a critter in my garbage looking for food then in my eyes to many of em out there and need a cull or it is injured and not do what is natural and not good either.

A raccoon wandering around during the day is alarming. They are attracted to pet food that is out, birdseed, garbage etc.. They will also kill cats and dogs.

he came back and tried to attack my cat ....my husband shot him a few times w/ the bee bee gun. He hasn't been back since. It's just like a bee sting. My pets are domestic and it is my responsibility to protect them.

No I should e able to secure my trash can and I do, not gonna shoot a critter for that, but for him to show up twice and make lunch eyes at my cat ....We are gonna take care of it.

I do not feed stray or wild animals. If you feed wild animals you become the food source and I don't want to be that. I believe in survival of the fittest.
but if a animal is hurt I will help as needed.

We were kinda nice to this raccoon at first, because no one live in this house for 18 months so critters too over the yard. I've removed at least 6 turtles, scared away a opossum (who will get shot if he shows up again, cause they are disgusting!!!!) and we attempted to scare this dude away, so we just gave him a little reminder that our yard is not fun.

Use a hose, lock up food. I love them but they will distroy your house given a chance.

He never licked my face, he loved to smell what was on me.
