It doesnt look very sharp or anything to me, just seems soft. C&C is welcome.

If you see a raccoon out during the day theres a good chance its rabid. Be careful.

We had a coon living under the backyard neighbor shed. I got shots of it during the day sleeping on top of the shed. It didn't look to kind, that's for sure.

Hey Artillerist, you get lost or something?? You're in the wrong part of the internet.

Neighbor's dog went right up to it, sniffed it, and the coon didnt do a thing. He came out callin for the dog and she went towards the house and the coon just followed him. Ill def keep a look out for him

Coons are not likely to be rabid just because it's daytime . Not all night animals only come out at night . They prefer night but if disturbed a coon , skunk or other night varmits will move in daytime or if they are in a new area , or still hungry . Rabid animals are usually agressive towards pets and other animals if bothered and on the defense if humans get close to them but a Rabid animal of any kind will be stumbling in awkward directions and growling and foaming at the mouth most times . So just because you see an animal in the daytime doesn't mean it's rabid . I've seen alot of coons in the daytime in my younger days as a country boy . The only animal i feared was the skunk cause they are nasty to the smell :D :D !!

Just because it was out during the day doesn't mean theres anything wrong with it. BUT since it didn't run away when the dog ran up to it I'd say there's a GOOD chance something is wrong with it. My guess would be more like Distemper than Rabies. I've coonhunted since I was 13 and I don't think I'vewr ever saw a coon with rabies,but I have saw a few with distemper. I might be wrong but I don't think they have rabies near as bad as the game commisions try to lead everyone to believe they do. I think they yell rabies alot so most people won't try to catch one and make it their pet.

The raccoon around here are always out during the day. As for being rabid, would you see them out and about passing it around, or would they be hiding in their burrows/dens etc?

Have you seen the old version of "Ole Yeller" the movie ?? Yeller gets rabbies and puts on a good act of how rabbies affects any animal that gets it . But eventually it kills them anyway . Most coons just sleep when they are tired then they are on the move . So depending how long they sleep and when they wake up effects when they might be out roustin about . If they are sleeping and you disturb them they will act accordingly depending how close you are to them . If your close enough to touch they might bite you , otherwise they will run like heck !!

BTW just FYI , if you see their mouths foaming and they charge you and are growling then you better run like heck yourself and call the authorities and report it as a rabid animal .
