I was leaving the house yesterday morning, As I walked out on the back porch I saw something go under the steps, I went back in the house and grabbed a .22. When I came back out a raccoon was in my driveway. It wandered around the corner of the house into the backyard. As I approched it, it did not run away, It had a clear path to the woods behind our yard, Instead it stopped and turned towards me. I shot it once and It walked into the dog house between Him and I. where I dispatched it. I was going to call animal control but was concerned about them finding out that I had discharged a weapon in the neighborhood. Do you think I should have called them anyway?
