We had a rabies outbreak here a few years ago. Really thinned out the coons. In the early stages they became quite aggressive and fast. As the disease progressed they exhibited the traditional symptoms of salivation, lack of coordination and erratic behavior.

Be careful handling anything they touch and especially any carcasses.

Never seen a shake-out race? Or, seen a boar coon get feed-up and come down the tree to fight the dogs?
After all, the name means "little brother of the bear".

August squirrel season in Indiana. All the leaves still on trees. Squirrel goes up the tree. I'm looking and looking and see some fur through a little space on a branch. I cut loose with a low brass #6 12ga from a single shot H&R. Raccoon hits the ground hurt and upset off and decides to take it out on me. Hilarity ensued trying to load up another round while trying to keep this little fuzzball of death from clawing his way up my leg. Lesson learned. :oops:

I scared the heck out of one a few days ago, he snarled and growled. They can be fearsome

No doubt he had super in mind
Around here in the land of few trees, the coyotes kill alot of them, strange thing is they rip the ribs & guts
out of them but dont seem to eat them, in the summer irrigating is when i find most of them, the coon come for the frogs & a fish in the ditches some times i have to finish off the coon as the coyotes just rip them up
