Oh, P-L-E-A-S-E! This is why I don’t live in California anymore. If a racoon is attacking my dog – dead racoon. It’s that easy. And I grew up with a racoon as a pet – but once they get a pack mentality and are brazen enough to attack a dog – it’s time to kill them.
No, I don’t buy the argument that “if we love raccoons and other creatures, we’ll be nicer to people as well, and we’ll all have a happier life.
Get rid of the dangerous raccoons – trap them, kill them, whatever. They aren’t as important as my dog!
What weÃ¢â‚¬â„¢re trying to inculcate in the L.A. community is a reverence for life. If we have more reverence for life, it translates into all our programs Ã¢â‚¬â€ for women and infants, the elderly and everybody in our community,Ã¢â‚¬Â said Ed Boks, the head of Los Angeles Animal Services.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“As we develop these programs that demonstrate our compassion for creatures completely at our mercy, it makes for a more compassionate society all the way around.Ã¢â‚¬Â
