There is a group of men that live near here and they hunt raccoons with dogs. Can anyone tell me more about this? What's the purpose? Someone told me they get points for everyone they kill. The pet lover in me thinks they are smart critters and beautiful too. Now if they have rabies, that's another story. I know VA had a rash of raccoon last year, with rabies. Now a town about 30 miles from here in TN is having rabid cats and raccoons. Is this part of the reason behind hunting them? I Don't Know.
