I seriously doubt dog food will hurt a raccoon. Get a couple of them over to the taxidermists and have them mounted drinking from a beer/whisky/Tito's bottle, then put them in the party barn.

IBTL!!!!!!!!!!!!!

D'OH,nevermind-I read your post.


There is an old man here,in his 80's,that feeds all sorts of critters.His wife died a couple years ago and they had no kids.He still lives on his farm.

But I digress,He goes thru 120lbs of catfood a week.Puts it out in buckets.Has raccoons,opossums,skunks,and of course cats eating on his back porch.He just sits in his chair and watches.I told him he'll be in trouble when the food runs out someday.

None of the animals fight either-they all show up,eat,then leave.Wierdest shit I've seen.


ETA-Damn I need to type faster!

Now that you have fed them, you may have a raccoon commune living in your yard before you know it. Not really a good idea, they can cause all sorts of mischief. You could live trap them and bring them to your nearest wilderness area, and release them. That's what I always do. the most humane thing really. Racoons that live near humans often come to a premature end, sadly.

The live traps here are around $30, the city may loan them for a deposit if you live in a municipality.

AS far as dog food, racoons are much like goats. they can live on damn near anything.

Refreshing to see someone not trying to just kill everything in sight fo no good reason.

Dog food won't hurt them at all. Soon you won't be able to get rid of them. They will tear up all kinds of shit trying to get more to eat. You better get rid of them. A raccoon is nothing but a glorified rat.

A friend of mine had a pet coon for years. He would fuck with it by giving it a sugar cube. The coon would take it to its waterbowl to wet it before he ate it. You know what a sugar cube does in water. The coon would go berzerk looking for that sugar cube.

So, put a bowl of water out there and a few sugar cubes.....................

That sounds like a hoot. I will have to try that with the coons at my cousins house. Coons are a pest but they are kinda cool. They are smart and can cause trouble.

Talking about keeping wild critters as pets, do you guys remember when you could get a skunk descented? It seems now that you can't do that.

It's crazy here in TN you can shoot skunks all year, but ya can't catch the lil ones and have the descented and keep them. They are just like a fluffy black and white weasel.

I was using one of those havaheart traps. The racoons were too strong for it and bent it up getting out. It went on for years. I really had to hold back the cat food and not leave any out at night or they would get it. They even torn a few kitten heads off so the wild cats learned not to leave kittens around the barn. Then they finally started getting weak from not getting their fill of cat food. They couldn't break out of the trap anymore. I got four in less than a week, including a really old ugly looking one. Now I have kittens running all over the place.

Young raccoons in the dumpster at work are cute, fuzzy, and in need of assistance.
We helped them out of it, and they found their way back home....
to the roof of our machine shop. Tore the insulation out, etc.







Not to be fooled twice, when I caught one in my yard knocking
over garbage cans and tearing into trash bags......




NO, the dead varmint isn't one of the ones from the dumpster.
The photos were taken a year apart.

Raccoons are smart, crafty, and frequently troublesome.

These wild animals can mistake intentions and take a swipe at you or bite you causing an infection. They also can carry fleas and rabies.

Each year, health departments issue warnings about establishment of rabies in this species with public health concerns about an increased risk for rabies transmission to the human population because the raccoons are well adapted to living at unusually high densities in urban and suburban environments. Texas in particular has had it's problems with fox and raccoon rabies.

"There is no cure for rabies," said Dr. Fandrich a public health official. "If a human being contracts rabies, they die. So you don't want to take chances with your lives or your family's lives."

Know the risk of interacting with seemingly "tame" wildlife that you invite close to your home.

For the first time in recorded history, a girl just this past year SURVIVED
rabies infection without treatment.

She was diagnosed, but already testing positive for symptoms.
Too late for the standard rabies shots.

She got pretty sick, but was kept alive in a coma I believe.

Last I heard, she recovered.

i heard a story about a KA fraternity somewhere in GA that had some coons around the house. Well, one night they saw a coon acting erraticly outside, so they shot it and decided to feed it to the pledges. they all got rabies.

we used to use dog food in feeders for raccoons to be able to find them easier for training coon hounds and it never seemed to affect them in any adverse way.
