There was a raccoon outside of his door, doing some weird hissing sound. I went to another window to wait for him, and to let him know there is a raccoon outside of his door, and to be careful coming up. Well, he didnít come, but the man who always walks his two German Shepardís was getting closer to the house. I yelled out the window that there was a raccoon outside the door, and if he can get it down. He didnít get the raccoon. He sent up his two German Shepherds to maul that thing to death. The sounds from the squealing raccoon, and the growling from the dogs gave me nightmares for a while. After the raccoon was dead, the guy knocked on my door asking for a trash bag to throw it away. He did. But I was left to clean up the blood.
    To this day I realized it didnít have to go down like that. I could have just waited to it to go away. I didnít think the guy would let his dogs get to it either.
    Wow, I would never knowingly hurt a raccoon. We haven't had trouble with them in MANY years. They seem really calm and docile. I remember posting a video here a while back where we had accidentally trapped a humongous raccoon instead of the groundhog we were aiming for. I would also be concerned about my dogs getting rabies from mauling one.

    Speaking of raccoon squealing sounds, one of the worst, eeriest sounds I'd ever heard was when I was painting my mom's bathroom, and every time I went to a certain area of the bathroom, I heard shrieking above me (attic). It really freaked me out because I had no idea what animal was making the sound. We ended up hiring a professional pest control guy and found out it was a family of raccoons living up there.

    Yeah, I think people's individual experiences with them can vary. I've had a number of experiences with them and they've never been aggressive. I remember posting some pics a couple months back of an injured raccoon that was hobbling back and forth between my neighbor's house and mine. A lot of injured animals become more aggressive when they feel vulnerable, but this guy was like "hey, help me out guys."

    Now, groundhogs. Those guys are little assholes. I will punch one right his freaking face. Eating my vegetables. Trying to dig under my house. And when you get one in a cage, they completely spaz out - as opposed to the raccoon, who is like "hey, can we make this a win-win situation?"

    This thread has taken a very depressing turn.

    Wow, I'm sorry czb. That's heartbreaking.

    And I'm sorry you had to see that, pinkbunnyslippers.

    Raccoons are very cute from afar, but at best, they're menaces that will knock your garbage over and ruin your gardens. They end up as roadkill a lot and I hate to see them injured, but they are also scary and aggressive in their own right. I haven't had too many terrible run ins with them, but I also keep a safe distance because they carry disease and will bite.

    Coyotes are scary. I was on my patio one night just getting some fresh air before going to bed and I wondered why there was a dog trotting down the middle of the road without a leash and realized a split second later it wasn't a dog. I didn't do anything, but it kept watching me and as it went down the road it kept turning around to look at me. I looked it up when I went in the house and I guess if they turn around to look at you, they're considering doubling back to attack. I mean, I literally was just minding my own business and if it did come back, I could have gotten back inside, but it was unpleasant.

    My cat is part Maine Coon, so says the vet after looking at his xrays, and he lived outside in my neighborhood for months as a feral cat. We could never find the owner and he kept coming by our house so we'd feed him and eventually brought him inside. When I look at the old pictures of him, I want to die, because he looks so thin. We brought him to the vet to get him checked out and to find out if he had a chip, which he didn't, and he hadn't been neutered either which is odd with what's supposedly an expensive cat. He is so big now. 18 pounds, but within his normal weight range for his breed. He used to run outside sometimes and I would flip out because I was afraid he'd leave and go back to the wild or he'd get taken by the coyotes. I honestly don't know how he survived out there for so many months. But I got him a harness and he won't walk in it. He just lolls around on the grass. If I carry him outside he meows his head off until I bring him back inside...maybe he thinks I'm going to turn him loose? But I'll be honest, I did go straight to chewy to check prices on cat strollers when I saw those pics. I think he might like traveling in style and getting some fresh air. They have some for $70-$100 which doesn't seem outrageous to me for something that is pretty OTT, but I wonder if he's too big for them. I think he'd be a little weirded out at first but he absolutely loves people and when the doorbell rings, instead of running and hiding, he comes to the door to see who's come to visit him. I think he'd love the attention. I love how Jennifer's cat is just chilling in there with his/her human servants pushing him around.

    I've been woken up at night by foxes fighting. Sounds like a woman screaming. Very scary and weird.

    We could start talking about cheese.

    I like this pic way better than the ones of Assfleck and his woman child with their poor dogs.

    But that cat looks like it wants to cut a bitch. Which, is partly what I love about cats.

    Where I come from, they’d rank up there with dirty animals, like opossums,bats and rats. I was afraid of all of them. As I got older, I realized they are not as bad as people made them to be.

    Thanks. Yeah, it was pretty bad. I was around 16 or 17. I’m now 40, and still feel sad and guilty. I have never seen a coyote in real life. I’d be scared. I heard about them killing or injuring cats and dogs.
    Your cats sound cute. A fluffy, cuddly ball. He’d probably like it in the cat stroller.

    Oppossums aren't dirty animals. They actually are good to have around as they eat ticks and fleas and do not carry and spread rabies.

    Yes, they are important little creatures and they very rarely carry rabies.

    people are crazy. they will defend a wild coyote but call the cops on a black birdwatcher. the world has spun off its axis.
    People have lost their damn minds. My mom asked her neighbors to either keep their cats in or put bells on them because, where my mom lives, the cats were killing off the birds and baby bunnies daily. Her neighbor said his cats didn't do stuff like that. I've seen my own dogs kill a rat, animals do weird shit.

    We live in coyote country. See them several times a month and hear them more often than that.

    Oh, man. I guess you don't like Chunk the Groundhog on Instagram!! It's a whole groundhog family!

    I love opossums. I used to feed one in Miami Beach. I fed the stray feral cats that lived near my building. one night I noticed an opossum just appeared at the feeding circle. so cute.
