    Funny, I got the rider out of the shed to mow the yard today. The dog started snooping into a spare tire (not mounted on a rim) in the shed.
    All of a sudden, I hear hissing, and a Racoon paw swatting my dog in the nose, lol. Luckily, after screaming at my stupid dog to leave it alone, he decided to get out of the shed and leave it alone.
    I was just picturing that paw getting a hold of my dog's nose, and a chaotic situation happening, lol.
    Guess I'll get a hold of animal control tomorrow and see if they'll set up a live trap. I don't really feel like buying a trap, letting it live in there, or shooting up all the crap in my shed.:crazy:
    It was kind of a funny scene though, seeing the Racoon paw reaching out of a tire, slapping my dog in the face, lol. Just glad the dog didn't push the issue too much and get bit.

    Raccoons taste good roasted. It actually tastes a lot like pork.

    You could just plug the tire, after you clean the blood out of it. Lmao.

    Grab the tire and roll it out of the shed as fast as you can!
    Then.... Get a video of a very dizzy raccoon crawling out when it stops rolling. :D

    If you've ever ridden downhill inside a very large inner tube.... You'll understand.

    Get a ratchet strap, hook the tire and drag it outside. Coon can find his way from there.

    Our superintendent had a coon crawl through the dog door. He woke up to all hell breaking loose between the dog and coon tearing through the house. Took a couple of shots to finally kill it.....But he has a bullet hole in the side of his refrigerator. He now locks dog door at night. ☺️

    Cayenne Pepper powder. I use it to keep the cats off my cars. Eventually they will touch their mouths with a paw and burn it. That usually will get rid of them. However, the one time I looked out at an old Tom sitting on the roof of my car cleaning himself and he started squirming. The powder will light up any mucous membrane and guess which one he was sitting on?

    Raccoons are bad know for carrying rabies, just be cautious. It's likely already gone, they don't like the attention.
