Need A Coon Hat ?
« on: August 23, 2006, 01:03:33 PM »
Psycho killer raccoons terrorize Olympia Tue Aug 22, 9:04 PM ET
 


A fierce group of raccoons has killed 10 cats, attacked a small dog and bitten at least one pet owner who had to get rabies shots, residents of Olympia say.

Some have taken to carrying pepper spray to ward off the masked marauders and the woman who was bitten now carries an iron pipe when she goes outside at night.

"It's a new breed," said Tamara Keeton, who with Kari Hall started a raccoon watch after an emotional neighborhood meeting drew 40 people. "They're urban raccoons, and they're not afraid."

Tony Benjamins, whose family lost two cats, said he got a big dog a German Shepherd-Rottweiler mix to keep the raccoons away.

One goal of the patrol is to get residents to stop feeding raccoons and to keep pets and pet food indoors.

Lisann Rolle said she began carrying an iron pipe when she goes outside at night after being bitten by raccoons when she tried to pull three of them off her cat Lucy. She obtained rabies shots afterward as a precaution.

"I was watching her like a hawk, but she snuck out," Rolle said. "Then I heard this hideous sound a coyote-type high pitch ... It was vicious. They were focused on ripping her apart."

The attacks have been especially shocking because raccoons came within five feet (1 1/2 meters) of cats without any problem in previous years, Benjamins said.

"We used to love the raccoons. They'd have their babies this time of year, and they were so cute. Even though we lived in the city, it was neat to have wildlife around," he said, "but this year, things changed. They went nuts."

In one case five raccoons tried to carry off a small dog, which managed to survive.

The attacks, all within a three-block area near the Garfield Nature Trail in Olympia, are highly unusual, said Sean O. Carrell, a problem wildlife coordinator with the state Department of Fish and Wildlife, adding that trappers may be summoned from the U.S. Department of Agriculture to remove problem animals.

"I've never heard a report of 10 cats being killed. It's something were going to have to monitor," Carrell said.

Meanwhile, residents have hired Tom Brown, a nuisance wildlife control operator from Rochester, Washington, to set traps, but in six weeks he has caught only one raccoon. He and Carrell said raccoons teach their young and each other to avoid traps.

Brown said he had seen packs of raccoons this big but none so into killing.

"They are in command up there," he said.




I think it's time to make Racoon fur more valuable, or see if I can train my new Hound pup there.  :twisted: Atleast I know he isn't gun shy, I wonder if these Killer Coons are?  ???

Friggin' city folks! >:(  Even the trapper they hired isn't worth a crap!  When I was doing the nuisance wildlife control, I never had a coon, squirrel, skunk, possum, etc that I couldn't catch.  As far as the cats, let the coons keep killing them! :twisted:

In all seriousness, the Marlin is a great rifle, too. I own a Model 60, one of the best rifles ever made.
Brownings are nice, but in terms of quality AND accuarcy AND ruggedness, it's hard to beat the Marlin.
California sucks that's it.

Sounds like a good reason to invest in a nice pellet rifle.

I got myself a 'coonskin cap once.....

Maybe next time I should kill the racoon first.
To you gutless cowards and scumbags, who are trying to lie and rewrite history. To those out to commit genocide on the Southern people with your destruction of Confederate monuments and your attacks on Southern heritage and pride. Be happy for now. Because someday when that civil war you wanted starts. I will find you. And I will kill you.

when I was a kid, I caught alot of racoon feet, in the foot trap... then I moved up to 220 conibear, and tried putting bait in the prongs, got robbed numerous times...I placed bait on the prongs,and bent the prongs outward, the trap would be set off, and the bait was gone again...then I took a trapper course when I was older and learned to boil, and place randomly on trails with no bait...that got 'em...coons arent worth much but I'm thinking of gettin my trapper licence this year, just to see how many I can nail...it was fun experimenting, but as the years went by, I got busy with other things, but still have my old traps...anybody else have sly racoons and have been robbed, or outsmarted in your younger years??

Sound to me like someone with a .17 and a stuffed dog toy could rule that town.....set up the dog toy as bait and wait for those monsters to come.....then lay down some ground fire and eliminate the problem..... :twisted:

BC knows!  O0 They need some of our GP coonhunters to solve their problem.  :twisted: We have one pest coon here that likes our trash container. One night my wife heard a ruckus and went out to investigate. Guess what? Our two squirrel dogs were playing with the big coon, the 3 playing like 3 pups. They were careful not to hurt each other, and were having a grand time. Go figure. Hey, no wise cracks, plottdog!  :wink:  ;D  ;D  ;D

what from me i cant believe you would think i would ever make any bad comments about that gritty pack of poodles you have or was it wiener dogs. how much would you charge me to breed some of my hounds to your killer pack :twisted: sounds like mine could really use a dose of that. wonder how much i could charge if i went over there and just turned my hounds loose to stretch all them masked bandits they could
It takes patience to break a good hound. Ya gotta be persistent and it helps to be a lil smarter then the dog.
