ICA ~ it's their land, we invaded it.

No, I wouldn't eat the stock. Yes, I'd let the raccoon have it. You put it out in his territory, it's not his fault he thought he hit the lottery. It's just mean to take it away and treat him like he did something wrong. It's his nature to find food and live. Terrorizing him is not nice. Sorry, I'm just on nature's side when it comes to things like this. They were hear first. It's their world, I just live in it.

Okay, I have to add ~ chicken stalk shouldn't take all day to make. It's a rather simple process.

I have to disagree-If I remember my "Beverly hillbillies" Granny Clampett served raccoon soup on a regular basis-and Jethro loved it!!!

Sorry! I have to agree with callisto. Go ahead and let the racoon have it, at least that would be better then letting it go to waist.

No one suggested terrorizing the raccoon, just throwing the stock out.

If she did choose to give him the stock, I would suggest doing it away from the house.

I am not sure how you came to that conclusion. We share this earth with the other animals. It was not theirs and we invaded any more than it is ours and they invaded. This earth belongs to all the creatures that inhabit it equally.

I would toss the soup. You have no idea what might be in there now. there are just too many unknowns.

I would not give it to the animals because that would just encourage them to seek it out again and then you would have a larger problem on your hands.

Since the answer to that is political, religious, and current events, I can't exactly answer that here without a major violation of the rules.

Fair enough. It would probably be going off topic anyway so it is best we stick to the soup question as it stands.

Boiling it will not make it safe. That's the rule for all foods.

And I wouldn't let the racoon have it. If you do, you will be encouraging it to view your house as his restaurant and he will likely stick around.
