First off, let me point out that people do eat raccoon in some areas of the country. They taste like chicken (seriously) and tend to have a flavor that is influenced by what they were eating. If they were a trash panda, you never know what you'll get. If they were foraging, they'll taste a bit gamier.
Don't eat a raccoon that has rabies or is acting weird. Also, in some areas like the Rocky Mountains, raccoons may have a gut parasite that can be deadly to humans if left untreated. If you're still wanting that dead raccoon to be the centre of your elegant shotgun weddin' feast, here's a tasty recipe.
