I'm sick and dang tired of picking up trash all over my backyard every single morning.
I'm giving away one free year of govols247 for every one raccoon someone destroys.
I like most animals more than I like most people, but this has to stop.

Welcome to the neighborhood.
Your team. All the time.
Ive got just the dog for the job...
Does said dog eat raccoons and spit them out all over the place as a warning to every other raccoon in the area?
I don't live too far away. I'll bring a trap by if you want me to.
Like I said to Wes on twitter, he needs to call The Turtleman from Animal Planet. Get some "live action" down to Knoxville!
that guys is hilarious
Going to Wal-Mart. I need baby powder, cayane pepper, a slingshot and beer. No raccoon's eating this guy's trash tonight.
We also need some light bulbs and maybe some cereal. So I'll get that, too.
Totally unrelated question: It's illegal to "discharge a weapon" in the city limits, but, um, does that include a bow and arrow??
it's only illegal if you not fending for your life...just say it was attacking you? lol
Well in city limits I think traps are in order.
You can't "discharge" an arrow unless you use explosive tips ala Rambo, so you should be fine there...
Get one of those really high powered air rifles.. They shoot like 1400 ft/s. It will kill a coon and your neighbors won't hear you shoot

Paint ball gun....
Check with animal control. In some counties, they loan out traps. They come and euthanize the coons that you catch. I caught 6 in a week (with hot dogs as bait) and never had a problem again.
Get a 22 short rifle and some night vision goggles. Sorted.
...or you could simply remove the source of their food and the raccoons and other animals will go somewhere else. I don't know if you have a coyote problem in Knoxville like we do in Atlanta but if so, once they move in you have big trouble and a lot fewer dogs, cats and raccoons.
I think I still have some trip wires and claymoors from my Vietnam days. We'll get those pesky varmits.
Ding, ding, ding. Winner.
My neighbor has a blow gun.........I think he bought it in a gas station in Bucksnort TN for only $15. That thing is awesome........dip the darts in a poison and do work!..................or just lace a plate of something with a poison to kill said racoon.
Wes call coach Summit I hear she has a mean backhand when it comes to racoons..jus sayin
If you kill it, you must wear it.
"If I pull out the dart, can you suck out the poison?" Great Caddyshack 2 moment.
You are a man. I was afraid to stop in Bucksnort!
I stopped there once.......2nd time shame on me.
Mrs. Esterhouse? Caddy shack 2. That was a bad movie I haven't seen in a long time.
