(WCPO Cincinnati)   Apparently the Bengals/Cowboys game last Sunday was so dull that one fan decided to box with a mask wearing spectator & evict him from the stadium. (with video of altercation)   (wcpo.com) divider line 38

For me, picking up and carrying a wild raccoon ranks somewhere between get a root canal without anesthetic and being analy violated by some big John Holmes motherfarker.

"...a brave Bengals fan scooped up the masked mammal and escorted him out of the section.
Unfortunately, the man who grabbed the raccoon reportedly got rabies...
"

"Brave" and "hero" get thrown around a lot. This bonehead picked up a wild animal carrying a dangerous disease, contracted said disease, then unleased the infectious animal upon the rest on Cincinnati.

Reminds me of a less dramatically stupid version of the media's "hero" (see:idiot) in that Florida School Board hold-up who (in the video around :45) decided to swing a handbag at an armed man about twice her size while he points his weapon a number of potential victims.

You're right. They have to kill it to test it for rabies.

What in the hell are you on about?

There has not been a case of raccoon rabies in southern Ohio in almost 20 years.

I work with rabies vector species in southern Ohio and .. I just can't even figure out what the hell you mean here.

What disease was he supposedly carrying? Who contracted what now?

You're reading the article after an update.
FTFA: Unfortunately, the man who grabbed the raccoon reportedly got rabies.

I'll forgive your outrage, since I see they've made a correction.
The initial media fear-mongering was quoted in my post, their correction now reads: "Rumors the fan was being treated for rabies are "premature," said Cincinnati SPCA Director Harold Dates." The "rumors" they reference are from WPCO's article itself. I defer to your knowledge on Ohio's rabies/raccoon stats not being from their myself. There has been at least one case in my neck of the woods in recent years however. 

You've now been favourited as resident expert on rabies, raccoons and southern Ohio.

Oh! .. ok. Silly CPO. They should have known better.

I'm sure what they mean to say is that he is being treated with rabies prophylaxis treatments just in case, which isn't a bad idea, and it's only really painful if you have to get a shot in a knuckle or something like that.

I'm not a rabies expert, but I have had to take classes on it to work with rabies vector species (which I don't really do anymore, as I no longer work for the rehab center, but I have my stuff up to date just in case I get a call)

Did a pretty good job of "holding on to" Romo's facemask....

Considering how many times a QB has had his helmet lightly grazed and gotten to walk forward 15 yards, Dunlap running in and yanking Romo's helmet the opposite way of his body while his knees were pinned was... well... not something I'm upset about.

Here's the video:
Dunlap obviously grabs the mask and twists.

It's most apparent in the slow-mo replay at the end. Also note Doug Free, who is a disaster in pretty much everything he does, running in and laying a hit on his own QB.

He wasn't grabbing at Romo's facemask, he was grabbing at Romo's chest and Free's back altered the path of his arm, causing his to grab something other than what he was intending to grab.

It was a bullshiat call, but we'll take it.

Free's best play of the game was an accident.

He visibly grasps it. I know sometimes facemasks are accidental, but I don't know how you look at it and say that it didn't deserve a penalty. Especially considering how so very little you can touch a QB without getting a flag for anyone not named Tony Romo.

It was quite fortunate for the Cowboys that Free's back was there, yes.

Also fortunate that Tyron Smith whiffed on tackling the defender as he was trying to do.

"The raccoon is being tested for rabies." Doesn't that almost always mean the animal is euthanized, decapitated, then the head is shipped to the State crime lab? I used to volunteer at a vet's office and got to see a Golden have its head removed for that purpose (it bit a stranger and had no vaccination history). One of the reasons I'm not a vet today.

This.

My dad was an avid coon hunter and I've seen one male coon kick 4 dog's asses all over our property. Not to mention my cousin who decided to shake it off of a tree limb that it had wound up on. It was quite a site seeing the coon run up his leg while all four dogs tried to do the same. It's one of the funniest family stories I have imo.

On a side note, about a year ago my little terrier Petey came running into my mom's house followed by what she thought was a grey cat that prowels the neighborhood. Turns out it was a young coon after him and he and my dog tied up in on the living room floor. I was in another room when I heard my mom and the dog begin screaming. She was yelling "coon, it's a coon", and my dog was yelling "somebody get this motherfarker off me." I ran in and realized what was happening and began to beat the shiat out of both the coon and the dog since they were tightly wadded up in a ball together going at it. After I got them apart Petey ran and the coon was just sitting there hissing. I slapped him about 4-5 times before I noticed a flip-flop on the floor so I picked it up and started back on him. After slapping him a few times toward the door he finally ran out. Fearing that he was rabid I called Animal Services about it. They sent some guy out and Petey was quarantined for 6 months. Luckily all 3 of us were ok.  I do know that coons are badasses when they want to be.

Great pic. I've known a couple of people who kept them as pets. If they are hand raised they're usually ok until they get the urge to breed(males normally), then they get testy as hell and they want to roam. Considering their range is very small they usually don't roam far though. Urban racoons have a 2-3 square block range at best. Rural racoons roam a little bit more but it's still a fairly small area.

I looked like hell in that pic. We were on our way back from a week long road trip and were *almost* home when the phone rang for a 5 raccoon pickup in a garage. Mom had been gone a few days and the babies were *very* happy to see us (as you can tell from the picture) but I looked like a deranged person when I got there.

I don't think the homeowner cared, as long as we took the babies with us.

The best I have been able to determine is that they get bored. Raccoons are scary smart and when they get bored they get angry and destructive.

We had a non-releasable resident at the rescue who knew how to turn on the TV with the remote. Not just button mashing either, she knew which buttons did what, and how to turn up the TV to max if she wanted the humans to get up in the middle of the night and play with her. I have found that as long as they have good mental stimulation like puzzles and food games... and a large enough area to run so they don't get stir crazy... they do really well. But they are not pets. It is more like having an autistic 8 year old, with all the wonder and heartbreak (and repair bills) that come with them.
