Raccoon got into my soup!

I was cooling a big pot of delicious chicken stock on my patio when my brother started yelling.

A raccoon had gotten into the pot and had been helping himself.

I spent all day making this stock. Will I be safe if I boil it and use it for my chicken noodle soup?

I don't think so - what if the raccoon had rabies?!!

Chuck it or at least let the Racoon finish it off.

No way! I wouldn't let the raccoon have it either, don't want to encourage raccoon by feeding him, having him invade your garbage cans is enough trouble. And they are real rabies carriers in the south, don't know about Boston. My brother-in-law got bitten and had to go through the whole rigamarole. Not what it used to be in the olden days, but a real pain anyway.

It's a shame the way the poor old masked prowler is so shunned these days. Canadian geese and deer are also less highly regarded than they used to be. Maybe the wild tukey will become the next public enemy?

I would definitely toss that.

And it doesn't mean you are "shunning" the coon
Feel free.

Yeah, I figured you guys would tell me to toss about 5 quarts of that liquid gold.

Bummer.

Did I mention that it took me most of the day to make it???

Okay, it's gone.

Sigh

We cool things like that in the cab of the truck, so that won't happen.

I sure wouldn't eat after'em.
