As I said on Facebook, no raccoons were harmed in the making of this photo. A taxidermist loaned us a frozen raccoon for the image. We did not kill this animal. That said, there's nothing wrong with hunting raccoon and eating it. Just as there is nothing wrong with butchering a chicken for a casserole, fried chicken, or hell, nuggets. Same difference.
I don't eat dogs because they have personality. Personality goes a long way.
Are you freakin kidding me? This is disgusting! What a shame! I will never visit LA or NC!! Have any of you actually really interacted with a raccoon? I don't mean cornering them, shooting them or teasing them. They are really wonderful mothers and amazingly smart. They have special individual personalities. I know this because I am a Wildlife rehabber, and I take in all the babies that have been orphaned due to ignorant humans. Oh and 5 lbs? Really? A 5 lbs raccoon is barely 4 months old!! Barbaric!!!
You have got to be kidding. This is 2015, crawl out your cave and evolve...no need to eat any animals at all. I don't understand why these people don't eat dogs and cats too.
Oh, the horror. How dare you suggest wasting a bottle of good Burgundy.
I hate this I cant even think of doing this to a raccoon. If you ever ever had one you would feel like you were cooking a child or a pet dog , Shame on you Shame Shame Shame , you are not starving and there is no call for this !!!!!!!!!!!!
your paper has no class, after seeing this picture i have lost all respect for you, lets put your ass in the pot and see how great you look
Hey Ron, if you're not up in arms about ISIS and Al qaeda, do us a favor and go do some volunteer work in one of their highly populated areas and give us a post/update ocassionally to let us know how things are going! Lightning haha you are awesome dude! Comparing a natural act to a group of nut-job terrorists!
The statistics argument is a good one. Cars kill more people than guns! Well, lightning strikes kill more people than terrorists do, so why is everyone so up in arms about ISIS and al Qaeda?
F*ing hillbillies. Evolve like the rest of the country. And while your at it stop torturing and killing factory farmed animals.
"Cars kill more people every day then guns do in months. Hammers and baseball bats kill more then guns."
Cars, hammers and baseball bats are not designed with the sole purpose of killing something else. People aren't crashing cars into school buildings or army bases or malls to commit mass murder.
The old timers used to eat anything that moved! My grandfather trapped squirrels and would make a nasty big old pot of squirrel stew with 7 or 8 of his cronies all cackling round the kitchen table over it. A few of the real old guys still do it and not as far away from Charleston as one would like to think - say hey Mt. P. They just love them some squirrel in SC. My grandfather would throw all the nasty little fellows in a freezer in the carriage house and split them up with our housekeeper who made a spicier version of same squirrel stew. Two SC old time squirrel killers. We would bring friends over in the summer and show them all the little bodies lined up in the freezer thinking they would sketch right out but many would just say oh yum squirrel. Hahahaha. It is what is is, Possum Pie and Squirrel Stew were Southern staples for a long time.
@Janet Stratman, yes. yes they would. http://www.charlestoncitypaper.com/charles…
awwwww At 5 pounds...these are just baby raccoons. ( kits ) I guess you would have to have raised one to understand how wonderful these animals can be. They get such a bad rap. I find this photo totally disgusting! If we all ended the animal abuse issues, the Planet Earth might just be a kinder-healthier place to live.
"The company started with him, his wife, his brother, and a high schooler packaging everything," Ruonala says. "Now we have over 300 employees with over 100 veterans or active-duty."
"McCallum started his company the same year Obama was elected president"
Sounds like he's done pretty well during Obama's reign of terror.
This is very sad, would you have a dead lamb hanging out of a stew pot for lamb stew?
"he discovered he had TBI, traumatic brain injury"
Definitely sounds like someone who should be armed to the teeth.
Sadly you should read the statistics. Cars kill more people every day then guns do in months. Hammers and baseball bats kill more then guns. What you are going by is the sensationalist biased media reporting.
Porsche has killed more people then you would believe, DR Porsche got his start in the Aero industry designing planes for the Germans.
Only thing is, Porsches don't kill people. I appreciate his American dream and the hard work he did to accomplish it. Other than that, he is just mass producing unnecessary & powerful artillery. Too many "accidents" too many lives lost in the name of self protection. America.
