Racoon tested +. Goats in the area where the racoon was observed getting boosters/rabies shots as they are due next month. Under observation now for 45 days. Wife and I only handled it with gloves and a pitchfork.

Its gotten almost across the yard and I have to work around the goat enclosure to get a clear shot and the thing turns and runs into the goat pen and starts chasing a goat around. Still no clear shot then runs to the other end of the pen where fencing is got smaller holes and it can't get out so it started heading back where it came from and I finally get a shot and it is down. One shot to the chest area with a 17machII and second to just be sure. Now the health department has it. Glad it went after the other old goat and not me.
Same thing happened to me yesterday. Middle of 160 acre field and he just walking across. 22 Hornet took care of the problem and 1 groundhog. The pig acted groggy like he had just woke up. 8 yds away and he didnt even notice me.

Don't want to tell you what to do, BUT, if you think it was rabid I would bury it and maybe the hog too. I've seen critters acting strange and whatnot and either it is rabies or maybe distemper. While an eagle or buzzard eating it won't have a problem (I don't think), a fox or another critter chowing down on the remains might pick up the problem and be another problem in the future.

Yep

Took one yesterday around 1pm. Luckily I saw one of the dogs looking at it as it came out from under the chicken coop. Called her in, grabbed a Rabid Raccoon Equalizer (RRE) and followed it around my neighbors house and down towards the woods. It's fur was starting to look disheveled and it kept hissing a little at me. Definitely sick. Buried him down about 3ft and covered with lime, dirt, stones and more lime.
They are just not as much fun to deal with as Ground Hogs!

Last year at work, we had FOUR groundhogs with confirmed rabies.
Our dispatch methods are different than most. Our guns typically involve darts, not lead.

in the early fall there was a fox out in the day light near my daughters daycare in Joppatowne. Told the daycare center to call animal control and not let the kids out until its verified that the fox is not around.

I want to say 2003-2004 one of the horses at our farm went bonkers, and it just so happened to be vaccine day for all the horses so they were in pens waiting their turn for the vet. Unfortunately it was only my father, grandmother, and the vet, as I was out of town with my grandfather on a school trip. Fortunately our vet at the time was one of the rare ones with CCW and carried an Airlite .357mag. People were scrambling to get the other horses loose so they could get away from the bonkers one, who was in the process of running straight through wood fences like they were nothing, cut up and bleeding everywhere. Periodically would reach down and take gigantic bites of the ground and just rip it to shreds like a bad golfer. After slipping on a hill and getting caught under a fence, the vet was able to get close and took out down with his .357 Was quite an ordeal and we were quarantined for a month. Grandparents and father both had to get the fun exposure vaccines. Fortunately for me, I hated the horse and never had contact with it so I was good to go. As it turned out, the seller of the horse fabricated the rabies paperwork to the new owner, unbeknownst to her, who then brought the horse to us.


EDIT: Forgot to mention that it was positive for rabies, they even specified that it came from a raccoon. That summer we eradicated the mange covered and obviously sick. We'd send them down to the vet school at UMD for testing, and one time the lady said no one was available at the time and for us to bag it and put it our fridge/freezer, to which my grandfather replied "lady, how about I come to your house and put this shit in your fridge instead?"............it was picked up within a couple hours.

So there is a raccoon rabies? Different from bat rabies? I always thought rabies was rabies and was not different for different critters. Still learning something new all the time.
And it was difficult to get the county here to come pick up the critter too so it must be some county employee disease.
