Really should have smacked the trash panda against the handy post so it could be tested for rabies

Goddam, that's impressive.

the viral marketing for GOTG 3 is getting out of hand.

eurotrader: Really should have smacked the trash panda against the handy post so it could be tested for rabies


Yeah, I get that it's hard not to think "Get this hyperactive collection of razor blades away from me!" but a good whack against the pole or the step would have saved them a lot of coming problems.

Not faulting her tho' and she did well all things considered.

Next up in the Redneck Olympics, the trash panda toss.

Pretty aggressive for a raccoon. Time to get some rabies shots.

"Lady, you met your match."
"Doc, it's only a scratch."
"And I'll be better, I'll be better, Doc, as soon as I am able."

I know it was probably the heat of battle, but Mom should've probably kept the monster so it could be tested.

Hope it wasn't rabid. Poor kid's probably still terrified.
 
2022-12-02 5:50:34 PM  
I'm impressed... no hesitation, just went right in there and grabbed that racoon. Probably wouldn't have touched that animal under any other circumstances... but protecting her baby! Also, the multi-tasking, wow! Holding that racoon at arms length with one hand while holding her daughter with the other, while opening the door for the girl to escape with her third.

Amazing how hard it is to think sensibly when you're in full fight or flight mode - and fark it you've chosen fight.  One of the biggest things they work on in any military is training you to do that, at least at a basic level.  Even higher one for combat officers, one of the reasons you don't find a lot of good ones.  It's farking hard  to do.  Anyone can fight if they're cornered hard enough, you have to learn how to be able to fight and think at the same time - and it ain't easy to learn

8/10 for distance and 10/10 for style points since she had a big windup and stopped to look at the camera.

Yup. Racoon 1) out during daylight and 2) attacks a human == rabies.

It was walking pretty sus afterward too. Although maybe because the mother brought the pain.

If you even see a raccoon during the daylight it's probably rabid.

Once when leaving for work a raccoon walked right up to me and hissed. I called the wife and told her to keep the cats inside. She called the cops, one showed up and shot the critter on sight
 
2022-12-02 6:06:19 PM  
There's no word yet on if the animal was rabid.

I'll spare you the trouble of a follow-up. That thing was rabid as f*ck.

Isn't that normal for police to shoot the first animal they see?

That's why he said to keep the cats inside.

I'd buy non-rabies if someone cornered one and forced the issue, but it wasn't like that

Regardless of how much training you've had, the moment it becomes real, some people run, others step up.

Saw it first-hand when I was in the Navy.  Drain cock on a seawater condenser for a big AC unit blew off and shot saltwater into a big electric motor.  That thing arced and let out a huge bang when it shorted out.  The electrician on duty in the soundproof room next to it (he was monitoring the auxiliary power board, and that was in a compartment directly above 3 huge diesel motor-generators; very loud) ran up the ladder to the compartment above, which was also where we all slept.  Everyone in the berthing compartment was awakened by the bang. I managed to gets pants and boots on, and was first on the scene.  Without really thinking about it, I shut off the pump supplying salt water to the condenser, so that pretty much solved the flooding issue.  Still had about 2" of saltwater sloshing around on the deck, and getting close to sloshing UP to that live aux power board, which would have sent a few hundred KW through the water.

We were cleaning up that water when the shakes started for me.  It's because I realized how close that water was to the live power.

So, until the bullets really start flying, you don't know how someone will react.

Y'all engineers are all farking crazy you know ;p

/well done, though
//that's exactly what training is about
///the knowledge to do that, and the ability to do that in the face of serious business danger - equally important

Number of years ago we started noticing a trash panda hanging around under one of the bird feeders. It wasn't moving right plus it was daylight. Called the police but they said they don't have an animal control officer and we should call the county. County says they just deal with unincorporated areas and I need to call a professional trapper. Professional trapper says it's $300 to come out and place a trap with no capture guarantee.
So the next day when Mrs. Huntceet was out shopping I fixed the problem and the trash panda went to live on a farm very far away where there was plenty of room and other animal friends to romp with.

Only laughing because of the end of the story. I know it wasn't funny in the actual moment.

Don't I know it, I've had a few event push me past the point.  Every time I've managed to step up but even now I don't think it's guaranteed.  

indy_kid: We were cleaning up that water when the shakes started for me.


I had something similar happen in the field in the Army.  We had a 15KW generator running with what seemed like sufficient ground (three rods 5 feet in, out in a radial pattern).  3 days of light rain and one a half day of down pour rain and suddenly we had a floating ground.  I stepped out of our equipment hut because I heard something.  It was our 1Sgt on the ground screaming, twitching and trying to very slowly writhe away.  I looked down and saw arching between our tow pintle and genset trailer that was separated by 2-3 inches.  I took off my jacket, took a deep breath, jumped and slammed kill switch.

1Sgt somehow came out mostly unharmed but doing some impressive swearing and so exhausted he couldn't even sit unaided.   I was sitting next to him waiting for the medics to take him in to get checked out when the shakes hiat as I realized that I had slipped while jumping and I was probably 1/2 inch or less from being a better path to ground than the arch gap.  We both ended up being taken for a check.  (My buddies where sure I had to have taken a hit as well).

*sigh*
So many of you either didn't read TFA at all or only read a little bit, yet feel confident in their comments.
The mom and daughter went to the hospital and got rabies shots. Ta da!

/ don't tell me it's a tradition because most of us don't feel that way

Shortly after buying my uncles house and moving back to the family farm in rural PA, I booted a raccoon about 15-20 feet (steel toe). It was the middle of the day, I get out of my car, let the pooch out, and then see a trash panda b-lining for me across the yard. Raccoons are notoriously susceptible to rabies, and just seeing them during the daytime is reason for concern. They're cute and all, but I felt satisfaction keeping my dog safe by kicking that rabid bandit.

Video froze on me on the local news so here's the direct link. At point I thought she was going to punt the guy.

Seeing that woman grab and throw it the way she did makes me less afraid of them. Raccoons go through my yard on a regular basis and I've wondered what I would do if one attacked me.
