Dogs on the prowl

When I came home this morning for Labor Day weekend I found out that my two dogs had killed two or three raccoons and treed two more. The closest things to describe what I felt right then are pride and excitment. My dogs haven't been taught to go after raccoons or other wild animals that come into the back yard they just do it on their own. I know of at least three other wild animals that they've gotten. What I mean by wild animals are animals like gophers or marmmots and now raccoons. They've never gone after other pets. Neither I or anyone else in my family would ever stand for that.
