This is the craziest thing. A rabid racoon has been spotted... not caught... just seen. Idiots. And this makes the news?

LOL @ this article, a suspicious looking raccoon.

I said in another post sometimes I feel like I am reading the comics.

Do be careful...I got bitten by a wild kitten and had to get the series of shots. It is NOT fun. They didn't give me a tag though, I was disappointed. LOL

In all seriousness, ANY outdoor animal can be rabid. If you don't know it, stay away. Avoiding the bite is the best way not to need the shots. I was trying to help a stray, and it almost cost me my life. Be careful!

Is the picture supposed to be an artist's rendering of the alleged racoon? Who has the free time to observe a racoon, deem it suspicious, then go report it. Losers.

Probably a young mother out during the day looking for food. April-June is when coons have their litters and the sows tend to look shabby because of not having much to eat.
People need to leave them alone.

Most likely someone who sits home and collect a government paycheck. What else do they have to do?

A rabid racoon ? Let`s see now, how does a rabid coon act ? Is he happy, mad, running in circles or just dose`nt care ? I do recall one time when i was a young lad that my parents told us kids that if we ever see an animal foaming at the mouth to run like heck. But you are right, the news media should tell everyone how a rabid animal acts ?

That was just Jake the Snake Knotts on a booty call. Don't panic. Once he gets a shot of small boy he will be OK for another few weeks.

I'm sure it thinks are the traffic and new houses in Lexington are suspicious looking also [not to mention the drug dealers on hendrix (maybe he got into some stash)]. The poor deer, raccoons, opossums, and other wifelife have no where to live anymore.
No where in the article did it state why they think it has rabies. Again it's Lexington PD they probably forgot to ask.
