Don't know what to say. :thinking
It was out in daylight hissing. Likely rabid.
Maybe he should have called animal control?
Maybe they have a protocal that says daylght, hissing, CHOOT'em!!
When guns are outlawed,
 only outlaws will have guns!(maybe)

Interesting story. 

I'm kinda surprised the PO discharged his weapon.  I'd figure in NY there would be a ton of red tape involved, but what do I know.  [Sarge?]  On the plus side, you got some free brass.  100 more raccoons and you get enough to shoot a match. 

Raccoons usually don't wander around to much in the daylight, so something was probably wrong.

If a raccoon is out midday like that, it most likely had rabies. Of course, you could've done the same more efficiently with a single blast from your 12 ga.  :wink

It was so unnerving to hear those shots so close to my house.  I am sure he made sure the shots were pointing downwards.

Shit I better check my sprinkle system.  Hopefully he missed the gas line which happens to run on the part of the yard

Hey, good idea to pick up spent brass after a shooting(that is technically what happened), and get your fingerprints all over them. Now when someone else calls the police to report shots fired, your holding the evidence, along with the guns.  :D

Kind of surprising in Nassau/Suffolk but it sure was efficient. I'm guessing waiting for animal control with a raccoon that was very likely rabid could have resulted in it getting away. All things considered seems like a good approach.

I am sure there will be protest by fellow raccoons tonight, all holding signs -- Raccoons' life matter.

Just wait until P.E.T.A. hears about this killing of wildlife at your residence. They'll be protesting on your sidewalk all weekend.  :D

He told my wife  this the third time (I am always fascinated as to why things happen in 3s) that he had to do this.  The town is growing concerned that there may be an epidemic of rabies.

Thank god I don't have a sidewalk. 

I heard that even after the second shot it was still moving a bit.  You would think that round was a defensive type one.  One shot should had been enough.  Suddenly shooting squirrels with my 50 does not sound excessive.

It's a good thing you knew what was going on... otherwise you could have run out the front door with your .50 & Sombrero to investigate.

ICE would have you half way back to Mexico as an MS-13 gang-banger by now.

The officer will no doubt be sorry he did that.

Poor shot placement. The LE needs some more practice. Should've given him a Guapoforum.net patch.  :D
