To the people that have had raccoons as pets -- you should be ashamed. Wild animals are NOT pets. They are NOT supposed to be kept as pet. They're wild. You think you're looking out for the animals welfare by keeping a wild animal, but you're not.

 

And it's not just raccoons. *smh* People are so silly.

He used excessive force, which looks like it scared the raccoon.

 

Considering a farmer might just as easily shoot anything messing with his animals, I certainly wouldn't call that excessive.

 

Furthermore, if it were a person attacking my dog, I'd probably have thrown his ass down the stairs as well. Not sure why I'd give preferential treatment to a raccoon. :ermm:

 

(and for the record, I've actually pet a raccoon before and love the little guys)

Not sure why this is posted under "JOKES"   

 

did we not have a thread about it already.... and this is not fit for jokes

 

was it best decision? probably not. did it take balls and was it worth it to save your dog? most likely yes!

 

 

 

still.. not a jokes post

This guy risked getting bitten himself, and grabbing the animal increased the chances of that happening.

 

He could have grabbed his dog, tossed him up the stairs, and scared off the raccoon.

 

Barring that, it also would have been quicker to just toss the animal over the fence. He really had to wind up to throw it down the stairs, and that's more time for the animal to have scratched or bitten him.

 

Or the raccoon would have bitten him as he was trying to free the dog.

yeah, all this bull* comments...  grabbing a dog, and tossing his up the stairs???  are you kidding me??? it would open his to attack from the racoon.

acting on the racoon first was the only viable option!   and under the circumstances, it worked pretty well~!

I do not know what people expected him to do and say it was a bad decision.  Was he just supposed to sit there and let them resolve it themselves (possible injuring the dog)?  Was he supposed to shoot (even if he had a gun) the raccoon (and possibly injuring the dog)?  Was he supposed to try to pry the raccoon by using a stick (possibly making the raccoon attack him instead of the dog)?  Was he supposed to take a few minutes and put on proper protective equipment (what if he doesn't have any?) and then try to resolve the situation (by then the raccoon could have severely injured the dog)?

Animal cruelty?  It was attacking his dog it gives him every right for him to that to the raccoon.  Yeah sure the second throw was too much but whatever not like he was getting off hurting the animal or else he would be harming his dog to like any sociopath.  I feel sorry for people who say this is animal cruelty because by the time he would have called animal control his dog could have gotten rabies or died from a raccoon bite.

damn people,  what is wrong with your perception?    there was no second throw!  its just second camera view!   come on! it should be obvious.

 

otherwise, i agree
