Re: interesting visitor


A rabid raccoon attacked a neighbor's boy a couple of years ago. Then when
the boy ran inside, it tried to attack through the patio door. When the
boy's dog came to help, the dog was attacked and had to be destroyed.
Raccoons are very fierce.

Raccoons can also transmit rabies to their kits before they show symptoms.
There is no *way I would feed raccoons with the incidence of rabies in much
of this country.
