'Coons From Heaven

MILLEDGEVILLE, Ga.  (AP) - Brad Davis was training his puppy to pick up the scent of a treed raccoon when his colleague, Donnie Lamb, decided to shoot the raccoon out of the tree.  Trouble was, Davis was standing underneath it.

The 15-pound animal fell 60 feet onto his head, knocking him out and fracturing three vertebrae Dec.  17.  "I heard him shoot, and the next thing I knew, I was seeing lights shining in my eyes," said Davis, 27.

For Christmas, he got a hard hat, a raccoon cap and plenty of teasing.  "People have been picking at me bad," he said.  "A friend called me last night to go coon hunting and said I could sit in the truck and just listen to the dogs."
