I was wondering if anyone could enlighten me as to the ethics of not chasing down a wounded varmint (Raccoon, possum, coyote, etc.) for a second shot if the first didn't kill. Shot a raccoon in the back yard last week (.22 CB) and it made it over the fence and ran away. (Kind of limped/flopped away.) Me, I didn't go after it. It was 3 am.
Am I morally bankrupt?
