So you would just stand by while your dog or cat is viciously torn apart by the raccoon? It's not like the video was meant to be for anyone's enjoyment, a real life situation posed its self and he did what he had to do to take care of it.
Can't say I disagree with your statement. He did what he had to, simple as that. For those who can't tell, there was no second throw. It was just another angle of his initial and (supposedly) only throw.
