Raccoons are mean & nasty

My uncle had a pet raccoon once.  Stayed in the house at least a little. Answered to the name "Racky".  I don't think it was mean and nasty or it wouldn't have lasted long.   Dirty smelly I can see.

They can be as tame as any house cat, but...they have the ability to be awfully nasty.  My dad brought a pair of kits home one time.  They were inside a hollow in a maple tree that he cut.  We bottle fed them and they were awfully cute.  Had them for a month or two until one of his friends mentioned it to somebody.  That somebody told a game warden and we had to release them. My mom has pictures of them perched on my shoulders.  Looking back, it probably wasn't a wise idea to keep them.

They can be real nasty, one of my best friends had one as a pet.  Thing was crazy!  GO ahead and pet it he says, I get about 3 ft from the cage and it flips out going crazy!  I said I don't think I will pet him today.

Check with some of the trappers I am sure they would love to take them away for you especially if the pelts have no holes!

Any lawnmower or snowblower running will muffle &/or disguise the sound of a 22cal...

 

CCI Quiets thru a heavy long barrel of an Anschutz bench rifle don't make much noise, either.
