I got this raccon from a friend, the raccons has been lying in his garage for three days. I am quite concern that hair will slip, I skinned and fleshed and that flesh already had this blue/green kind color in some parts. I salted already and I am letting dry hard. I was wondering if there is anything else I can do to help prevent hair slipage? Thank you for your help

Leon,
If you are using DP, coat it liberally, mount it quickly, and DON'T TOUCH it till it dries. If you are tanning it yourself, you need to pickle that sucker quickly and tan it. You will probably still get some slippage at these "green" spots. If you send it out, I'd be on the betting side it comes back with a few spots without hair.
