    A raccoon in my house would scare the bejesus outta me.

    Who knows, the raccoon could have been fine, could have been rabid.

    Ya, I wouldn't want one in my house but raccoons are funny. They are relatively fearless and extremely curious (especially where food is concerned). I was in "my office" a while back (Euphemism for my garage) having a cig and doing my crossword. I heard what I thought was my neighbors cat eating out of his bowl right next to my chair. Without looking I reached down to pet him and realized it wasn't cat fur. A young raccoon was sitting next to me eating the dry cat food and enjoying being petted. I chased him out but he would stop at the door, wait for me to sit down then come back in to eat. I finally put the food outside the door he finished eating and left.

    Critters that are outside shouldn't be poisoned. I don't think they should be shot unless harming livestock or to be used as food.

    Once they try to come into my home, dead.

    You can't please PETA people, I have tried.

    All they did was get nasty and insulting when I sent them a hat as a peace offering.

    PETA's objectives are so radical, I don't even like to admit that in the past few years they have brought an awarness to me of eating meat and pork and I only rarely do. If I am eating an egg, I simply can't image what it is, or I have to put it down..lol. Oh well, high cholesterol is not a good thing, either. I like to stay lean, so I eat the right foods to accomplish that goal.

    I have to wonder if a guy with a .50 cal handgun is compensating for something.
