Ted Nugent Hates Raccoons!

I caught the last few minutes of some show on Outdoor Channel. He was explaining how he's a big supporter of "Trapping", and how the raccoon was a most vile animal. He even stated that you would be doing God's work by trapping them and killing them. Something about they are so numerous we will never get the upper hand with them. They steal and eat quail and pheasant eggs, to name a couple of reasons. So how about it, you hunters? Is the raccoon really that big of a problem in the wild?!

They are vermin that carry many diseases, I have no use for them.

They do a number on our quail, and are shot on sight.

They are more of a nuisance in urban areas. Do they even live in the woods anymore?

I knew they were pests in urban areas, but had no idea they were such a problem in the wild.

Yeah, it sounded really stupid when he said it that way.

Yup, not as much of a problem in MI since the coyotes have gone crazy. But yeah, there's alot of them and they destroy the small game population.

Come on. Everyone knows they all moved to cities and towns years ago.

A friend, who lives on a tree farm, had raccoon problems.

So he bought a Have-a-Heart type trap and soon had his first customer. He put the captured raccoon in the back of the truck and relocated him to the wilderness.

Only one problem. The raccoon took exception to his ride in the country and relocation. When the cage was opened to set him free he thanked my friend by viciously attacking him.

My friend kept the trap and has caught more raccoons. He did make one safety modification to the trap. He tied a rope to the handle. No more raccoon bites since. (I guess I should mention that my friend lives next to a deep lake.)

Unfortunately they don't stay in the wild, they set up shop in your backyard, in your outbuildings.........vilest animal ever............I have sent many to the dirt nap.

They don't just take one chicken, they take them all at once.

Those little SOB's tore the entire ceiling out of my workshop. The workshop is the size of a medium-sized ranch style house. They suck.

They are vile and bold little bastards. We usually see them when out camping. We have to put all the coolers/food in the car and or secure the lids very well at the least. I've had them come within a couple feet of us to take the food from our camp site.

I might add they also go after the wild turkey nests eating their eggs also. People that trap them in town and relocate them to the country side are no better than people that drop off their unwanted dogs along a country road.

Ted would be correct on this issue. They are really tough on the bird population. Cap them all.

The people I've known who were involved with managing game bird hunting habitat, are all for the killing of the predator species, including coons.
