"Wild raccoons are dangerous and should NEVER be fed by people. One time they will be docile, the next something will upset them and they can do extreme harm, especially to children. They are known to carry rabies and a big boar can kill a 60lb dog in a very short fight. I have a ranch in south central Texas, and while I do not go around killing just because I can, everyone must be very careful of wild raccoons. This very morning a mature sow got very upset with me because I happened to walk between her and her nest in one of my big oak trees. I had no idea she had set up housekeeping. Had not my dog been able to fend her off I would have been forced to shoot her. If you do not live in the area where they are and have never educated yourself, you need to. They can be extremely aggressive and dangerous when they decide to and you will never know when that is. They are NOT cute and cuddly pets. They are wild and should be respected as such. I learned all this by personal experience. I absolutely love animals, but first I respect them for just that...a wild animal that cannot read my mind to know I don't want to harm it. I've seen it too many times, folks move out to the country, make "friends" with the wildlife and then can't understand it when the animals turn on them for "no reason". Animals don't need a reason, that is their nature. Respect it and leave them alone."
