kinda freaked out..

Last night I had to make a quick set check after a dentist appt. I wound up having a coon in a culvert and had to put a hole in its head to get it out. Well my gloves were missing from my truck so i had to be carfull with all the matter that came out of its head. Took care of the coon ok but there was a bit of mess on the chain when i pulled the trap. And when i got back to the truck i noticed a thorn scrapped my finger pretty good and i was bleeding a bit. And now i don't know if any blood or brain might have contacted the small cut.

Now im kinda bugged out today and better call the dr. To see if i should go see him. I think i didn't get blood or brain on me and im probably over reacting. Dang i hate those tuff coon.

Never , NEVER going without gloves again

Re: kinda freaked out..

I freaked out last year. Near identical story only I cut myself when cutting the ears free.. I rolled the dice and here I am.. I'm not saying don't go to the doctor. I'm just saying the chances of a problem are slim..

It is time to manage avian predators!

Re: kinda freaked out..

I'm debating now weather to call. It was such a slight scratch beside my nail. Sore today but I think it's from the thorn.

I know if I go to the doc by the time im done it will cost a fortune. But after reading up on rabies I didn't sleep at all last night. Just really don't want my kids watch me die from rabies.
I think im done with those dirty coon.

Re: kinda freaked out..

From the CDC website...
"The first symptoms of rabies may be very similar to those of the flu including general weakness or discomfort, fever, or headache. These symptoms may last for days."

First sign of any of these symptoms have the kids put you down... Ooops I mean get you to the doctor.

Re: kinda freaked out..

Maybe I'm just lucky. I have skinned hundreds of coon, all head shot. I wear nitrile gloves while skinning, but those sometimes get rips in them. From now until the end of the season, i will have all kinds of nicks, cuts, splits and punctures in my hands and I will get blood/guts/whatever on my hands just about every time I am in the shed. No issues yet, knock on wood.....

Maybe I should get the pre-exposure rabies shots and not worry about it?

From my hours and hours of reading last night I learned that's the final bit before you kick it.
