Default Which Book for Raccoon Vignette

Which book has the little vignette about the uplifted raccoons escaping from the government facility?
Is it a THS book or Biotech?

BIO90 has one, but THS might have one too somewhere.

Doesn't appear that THS has it, after some searching.

Well, TS118 says to use the coons from BIO, so they're one and the same 'thing', but the story is in BIO, yes.
CotE10 mentions Doolittle Virus-afflicted Raccoons.
BD140 mentions raccoons hacking home security.

Do they really called them "coons"?

The official template name is Neo-Coon, and it is usually referred as such in text. I think one referred to them as 'coons (with the apostrophe).

Coon is a racial slur.

Weird. So things like 'coonskin cap' are perceived to be about hats made from human skin as opposed to made of a raccoon?

Not when applied to a raccoon. It's like using the b-word with female dogs.

Yes, except when used explicitly in the context of discussing raccoons.

At any rate, the species are called Neo-Coons, not Coons, so there's no need for concern.
