    A rabid 'coon is a rabid 'coon durnit! You shoot the varmint and cut its' head off to get rabies tested first ask it questions later!

    They did. They kicked it, then killed it. But they had to file a report and didn't want to put the word "rabies" in it for some reason. I would hazard a guess that the reason is so that the neighborhood doesn't get all panicked.

    I'm guessing it's because it hadn't been confirmed to be rabid at the time the report was filed. My experience with that type of report writing is that you never ever ever put opinion in, even if it's something that seems obvious. I'm surprised there wasn't a line about the raccoon allegedly having rabies. The line about a punt suggests a cop with a sense of humor, at least.

    Yeah I totally understand, I'm just ranting for the fun of it. Cops probably didn't want to put "rabies" in the report no matter how obvious it seemed because it's always an assumption untill the tests come back, and why ass-u-me?

    Even in my brief stint as a security guard, we were told to never ever ever put opinions in a report, no matter how obvious. If you came across someone with a big lumpy arm that is obviously broken it is an "injury" until a doc pronounces it broken. Similarly, I could see that the raccoon was foaming at the mouth and aggressive, but no one says "rabies" until the tests come back.

    I think my favorite part of the report is where they describe how the officer gained a "tactical advantage" by punting a raccoon. Fantastic.

    kicked in lot 1107 ... landed in and shot on lot 1103.

    A punt like that is a hell of a tactical advantage.
