We used to trap them when I was kids. They have a fondness for suburban garbage. So, we'd place a brick and a chicken leg in the bottom of an empty garbage can.

The brick would keep the 'coon from tipping the can over. He'd get in, but wouldn't be able to get out. Then it was pretty much fish in a barrel with a .38 special varmint load.

Granted, I live near one of the larger parks in the city, but still. And I was under the impression that Raccoons were a pretty big problem as an invasive species in Germany.
Maybe. Never heard of or seen one in the southern reaches though. Bet our ticks take care of em

Their hideous garbage rich maw gnashing for your flesh.
Like martens? Those buggers are noisy as hell when mating. And bite through one or two brake hoses in my neighborhood every few months.

What's retconned? The meeting the troll leaders had before patch 4.1 took place on Zandalar Isle.

I AM NOW AWESOME! ZANDALARI FACT CHECKER!
Bad! Different isles, man >_<.

Between Blizzard saying they wanted more Molten Front style daily quest areas, and just how involved the Zandalari appear to be be in the overall Pandaria storyline via their ties to the mogu, I'd say its likely we'll see Zandalar as a patched in daily area/dungeon/raid hub thingy.
It's not Zandalar FFS.

ACTUALLY, the meeting in 4.1 was in Stranglethorn vale. Sure they SAY it is Zandalar, but they didn't fool me for a second!

And Racoons are all over pandaria, like Gizmo and socks.

I've read the some zoologists believe that if we put enough effort into it, red pandas could be domesticated to the same level that dogs and cats are.

They already kind of are.

They are a bit more wild and require more training, but having them as pets isn't unheard of. Just expensive.

I'd have a bunch if I could.

I'd train them to rob banks.

Somehow I doubt we'll be going to Zandalar in MoP. We'll almost certainly have some contact with the Zandalari, but their home island is likely off limits for now. Zul and pals are being set up as Big Bads and would be a big chunk of content should the Great Sea expansion still happen. And considering Blizzard doesn't really want us banding together against PvE content anytime soon, fighting two armies at once (from each faction's perspective) is a good way to provide that PvE content in a "PvP atmosphere."
