Went out this morning to feed my animals, Was in the process of filling up a bucket with some turkey feed, turned round, took a couple of steps and saw him. I backed up and my SO was at the other end of the barn getting the ducks their feed. I;m pretty sure this coon was sick. Just sort of turned around and didn't even notice me or runaway. My SO had a pistol (9mm) and shot him and he fell in the barn cleaner trough. Waited to see where it would go or what it would do, went under the metal slab we have across to get over to the barn door that goes out to the goat area. After getting all but my last 4 bunnies fed my SO tuned on the cleaner to move out and clean the trough where the poultry manure was pushed into and I waited and watched to see if the raccoon was dead. Not a body. so I finished getting the last 4 bunny dishes filled and turned around to take them into the rabbit room and there was this darn raccoon. I don't have a good aim so I gave the gun to my SO and he finished it off. Believe me drowning would have been a better way to go, but being as it wasn't in the live trap, it was killing him with the gun. The baby goat, chickens, turkeys and rabbits are safe abd other than the raccoon, no lives were lost. The way it was acting I'm pretty sure it was very sick.
