“Mom come quickly,” said my daughter standing by the door.
Here’s what we saw
We went outside for a closer look. I think this raccoon was sick.
- This raccoon was stumbling.
- It’s behavior was similar to rabid animals that I’ve observed.
- A car came down in our community and the raccoon didn’t move. The car had to move around it or it would have run it over.
We watched it for a while and then eventually went back inside. A few hours later we heard a loud bang. This raccoon was on our neighbors property. He shot him with his shotgun. It was a clean shot and the raccoon died instantly. My daughter was upset, but I reminded her that this raccoon was sick and it didn’t have long to live.
