Nasty. Raccoons out in the daylight is unusual and may have been rabid. If they grew to like 50 or 60 pounds, they'd be REALLY scary

Typical. Chasing down and attacking our white women.

Actually it was probably the actions of her dog, Madison, that provoked the raccoons into aggression, otherwise they probably would have left her alone.

Raccoons tried to get on our back porch once, momma just chased them off with a broom.

I was surrounded by a dozen angry racoons once while camping, so I'm getting a kick...
Luckily they let me back off slowly. Racoons will stand their ground if there is enough of them.

There's a pride of lions,

Yup. Keep your dog on a leash, you dippy twat, and you won't be attacked by the rest of the family, when Sparky chases a couple of kits up a tree.

I love raccoons, but I've only ever met the tame-ish ones in Stanley Park that get hand-fed by park visitors. It's fascinating to see them manipulating eggs with their little hands.

But they can be nasty - I often pass a couple of them fighting on my morning walks. And any lost cat in the West End usually ends-up as raccoon food.

If Internet porn has taught me anything, is that an athletic woman can easily 'beat off' a pack of coons.

This. Raccoons can be really aggressive and they will tear you/your dog/cat etc. up -- badly.

Punted a raccoon once that came at me from behind a log in a campsite. Came back about 3 times, kept punting him, also chased him with a stick while I screamed like a girl

He had long gnashing teeth and fangs....

The collective noun for raccoons is a 'Gaze' or a 'Nursery.'

I was hoping for some images of what a 28 year-old woman jogger might look like, pre-raccooning, of course.

I am disappoint.

Racoons are the meanest critters (outside of badgers and wolverines) you want to piss off. A 40 pound 'coon will do serious damage, even kill, a large dog. Cats are kibble to them.
