A sore nose
At least two raccoons muddied their paws at the beaver drag, and this one is missing a chunk of its nose.
I am sure it hurts a lot more than those ticks on its ears..
This is clearly a wound and not a runny nose or a natural discoloration and deformity.
Maybe it was acquired in a scrape with another coon, or maybe Br'er Coon's dinner fought back.
By comparison, this young fellow shows what a healthy nose should look like.
