What types of people are considered raccoons' "natural enemies"?

Hi. I'm doing some research on this for a project.

I know trappers, skinners, hunters and poachers are all enemies to raccoons. Raccoons are targeted for a number of reasons - people kill them for their flesh which they eat, for their fur, for their skin which is tanned and turned into leather, because they are considered pests, and for sport.

What other types of people are considered "natural enemies" to raccoons?

Animal control people aren't really enemies - they trap raccoons and release them back into the wild.

Please help. Thank you.

    Don't forget animal abusers and people with psychotic mental illness.
