Does your imagination really suck that bad you can't put yourself in a panic state of mind?

Also, yes, raccoons do have opposable thumbs. Some people should really just stop being armchair judgementalists.

 

Did you fail biology? Only primates have opposable thumbs. I don't doubt that he panicked, but he should admit that his intent was the kill the raccoon.

I looked into it, apparently it's a myth that I never heard otherwise but their "thumb" is able to grip and turn which is where the myth comes from. Oh well. It hardly matters. Do you really think it's relevant to ask if a creature has opposable thumbs before deciding how to save your dog?

You are being overly dramatic about the well being of the raccoon. There is no way it would have gotten seriously hurt being tossed.

It was at the moment situation, do you understand?  Kevin probably panicked and I am pretty sure he was freaked out by the raccoon himself also.  So what you are saying because he does not encourage violence towards animals he has no right to defend himself and his dog from a violent animal?  This sounds like Kevin was George Zimmerman and the raccoon was Treyvon Martin I guess you can never defend yourself even from a violent animal.  Sorry, but you need to understand the difference being cruel to a innocent animal or protecting yourself from a violent animal.

 

Spare me the "right to defend himself" ######. When is it ever about "rights" when it comes to animals? My point is that he intended to kill the raccoon when he threw it down the stairs. He shouldn't be sugar-coating his actions with "I don't condone animal violence". If he had any balls he would have said, "My dog is my family, and I'll kill anyone or anything that tries to hurt him." and leave it at that.

Are you ######ing serious? The raccoon was thrown down a set of concrete steps. There was an open gate just a couple feet to his left that he chose not to use.

Also, I WOULD probably try to get my god I mean dog first and just kick the racoon away, but i've seen those mofo racoons angry and They can be a real danger so, my dogs safety would be first :p

If he wanted to kill it, would it not be more lethal to slam it directly to the ground? There is limited "choosing" in a split second reaction. That's why I told you your imagination must really suck or you have no empathy at all.

If you guys watched/listened to the latest TWiT, Kevin clearly states his intentions. He just wanted to protect his dog Toaster. Anyone stating his intentions to harm the raccoon is misinformed, and should just STFU. :)

Let's see. Slamming something down from a height of 6 feet or slamming something down from a height of 6 feet down to the bottom of a stairwell. What do you think is more lethal?

 

As for my "imagination", I imagine that this moron let his dog out at 1:00am to investigate because it was barking, thus putting his dog in danger. I also imagine he carelessly left his gate open so wild animals can get into the stairwell in the first place. How's that for imagination?

Did he state why he allowed the dog to be outside at 1:00am? Or why the gate to the stairwell was left wide open?

Air resistance would slow the raccoon especially at that angle the drop would be less lethal than a direct, full force slam to the ground almost certainly causing brain damage. The "intent" is not there. It's pretty clear.

 

What you call imagination, I call completely irrelevant assumptions.

raccoons are small bears or giant rats??? I think a bit of both. they can be dangerous,as they've attacked and killed people before. they also can carry some serious diseases, especially if they have rabies.

 

and whoever feeds them is a goddamn idiot.

Air resistance? LMAO! You're just digging a hole now.

 

The intent is there because he had so many more options which he chose not to take. He also ran down the stairs to finish off the job if the initial impact didn't kill the animal. That's pretty clear. If he had known the throw wasn't going to kill the animal, and believed that the animal was so dangerous that it even needed to be thrown down the stairs, WHY IN THE **** DID HE RUN DOWN THE STAIRS immediately afterward instead of running back inside and locking the door?

More assumptions. Perhaps he went down to make sure it was okay? You tell me I'm digging a hole but offer no rebuttal. How persuasive.

Spare me with the PETA crap if it was my dog it comes first before that raccoon and you have to be most idiotic person because you can clearly see that the raccoon was going crazy because it thinks it is in danger which obviously what any animal would feel especially a dog and you think by Kevin just picking it up it was just going to calm down so he can just put it back down to the ground and it will just go away?  I guess to you raccoon has more rights than a dog that is a pet, next you tell me killing bugs such as ants in my house is wrong.  

 

No, the most idiotic person would let his dog out alone at 1 in the morning. Quit defending this moron. He made a bunch of terrible decisions, and saying he doesn't advocate "animal cruelty" is what is pandering to the PETA types.

In the heat of the moment you may HAVE options, but you do not take the time to consider them. He picked the raccoon up and disposed of it directly in-front of himself without taking the time to consider where that was, it just so happened to be a flight of stairs.

I think that PETA will check that dog was hurting by raccoon, so they will understand that's how does owner protect his dog as best friend.

He did. He was out at dinner, and came back. The dog needed to go outside to do its business, so he let it out. He heard noises, and went to see what happened. When he saw Toaster in trouble, his immediate reaction (keep in mind it's a spur of the moment situation) was to remove threat from the dog, so he flung the raccoon. He's a very sensible person, and in my mind, did the right thing. If you think his intention was to harm/kill the raccoon any further, you're wrong. He ran after the raccoon to make sure it was ok, but by the time, the raccoon had run off. So, the raccoon was probably scared, but fine enough to run off.

This is not fair. If you're judging him based on the video alone, you have very little facts. Once you get his side of the story (via alternate sources like Kevin Rose speaking on TWiT), then your opinions will be more strongly formed. You're just spewing ###### that he wanted to harm/kill the raccoon and he is pro animal cruelty.

First, he should have walked his dog to allow it to do its business. Letting the dog out alone to ###### and ###### all over the common area of condo or apartment complex is unconscionable. Second, if he wants to let his dog roam off-leash at 1 in the morning, he needs to train it to avoid confrontation with wild animals. There is no way that raccoon attacked the dog unprovoked.

 

If you want to hail this guy as a "hero" for treating his dog like his own child and saving it from a wild animal, he should be equally condemned for putting his "child" in a position to be attacked by a wild animal.

bah...just kill the raccoon....too much analyzing too much of too much for people to think about.  Dog was left outside, who cares, a crazy freaking raccoon attack the dog, ohh well, kill the freaking thing, i am sure there is more of them. (Yes, i have killed a few of these freaking things, and very proud of it).

 

animal cruelty would be if he decided to tie down the raccoon and started to use his bbgun to kill it slowly.

 

Piff, politically correct people....
