A Washington County man used a shotgun to kill a rabid raccoon that had wandered onto his property last week. Test results released Tuesday confirmed that the animal had rabies. Ben Howard of Princeton shot the raccoon at dusk on Jan. 18 upon request from game warden Brad Richard. Speaking to Howard by telephone, Richard asked Howard to kill the raccoon to prevent the spread of the disease. "It was a situation where I was quite a ways away and we didn't want the raccoon to get away," Richard said Wednesday. The incident was Maine's third involving a rabid animal this year, according to Maine Center for Disease Control and Prevention statistics.
