Don’t really know where to post this but I was in a situation today where I had to shoot something. I’m traveling down a road along a river with a speed limit of 55. Up ahead I see a truck come to a stop so I slowed down and notice this raccoon walking across the road very slowly. When it crossed the road it started to head up a driveway to a YMCA camp. I ask the guys in the truck if they thought it had rabies and they said yes. So I pulled over and called the cops. No one knew who had jurisdiction so I gave up. Right then a State trooper pulled over and asked what’s going on. I told him and we walked up the driveway after it. I told him that I would shoot it if he wanted me to. He said great idea because he didn’t want to do the paper work if he shot the poor thing. I took my glock 30 out and put it out of its misery with one shot. The trooper said thanks and went on his way. He never asked me if I had a permit for the gun or anything. I picked up my brass and left.
