Outdoorsman here. Raccoons and I go way back. Not unusual for a coon to approach a person. A sign of rabies is when their gait is irregular, staggering. They're unaffected by noise. Wounds on their body. Fluid discharge from their mouth or eyes. Constant screaming.
Of course, the normie shouldn't engage coons but a person with outdoor and wildlife experience can handle them.
What do you mean by handle them? Do you mean that you feed and pet wild Racoons?
My point is that people do more harm to wild animals by feeding them and attempting to domesticate them, than if they left them alone and actually scared them away. By feeding those wild coons they lose their fear of man and will be easily killed by hunters and people who see them as pest (garbage destroyers, chicken, duck, rabbit eaters). Moreover, by feeding them the natural sɛƖɛctıon is tampered with, the weak and sick can live and procreate weak and sick.
When I was a young man we had a park that had a small lake with an island in the middle. It was a huge nesting rookery for water birds. There were alligators in the lake and when a fledgling would attempt to fly too early and land on the water, the gators would eat them. The "animal lovers" complained about it so much that the park service removed the gators. Within two years there was no longer even one bird that nested in the island. What happened? Soft man tampering with nature. The racoons could then just swim across and eat the birds and eggs. Soon the raccoons were also gone because their food source was gone, and the place today is full of wild cats fed by the cat ladies (more tampering with nature).
Where I live the bears were protected, they could not be hunted. The city people started moving out to the country and feeding the bears. The bears lost fear of man and it was common to find a bear eating your 50lb bag of pet food in your garage that you left open. I had a dog to keep the bears out of my property and kept my garbage indoors at night. Then people started to get mauled by the bears. The solution from the state game commission was to issue like 350 hunting permits and the quota of kills was filled in one day. Sure, just walk up to a basically domesticated bear and put a gun to his head. Culling 350 bears was in my opinion an exaggerated crazy solution, since the only bears that needed to be culled were the ones that were spoiled. After the hunt, we no longer see bears. They are there, but they avoid man like the plague. The way it should be.
