Trust me, I know the feeling and it's not.

I'll take my chances with a raccoon coming through the doggy door, instead of a gator coming through the doggy door.

Thank you for posting that .
Yes, they have feeders that do the same thing. So if you have 2 cats and one eats most of the food, you can have their food separated and their side only opens up with that cats chip!

She shouldn't have let the dog anywhere near the raccoon at all. The part where the two animals were scuffling together horrified me. Raccoons are known carriers of rabies and are fierce fighters that can rip another animal up big time. I would never let my dog come into contact with a frightened raccoon!

Meanwhile, in Australia a family found a Koala perched in their Christmas tree. Much better than a raccoon in my opinion.

I agree. Not funny at all, the amount of damage a scared raccoon can do.

Glad i'm not the only one who was freaked out by that. No way i'm letting any of my dogs near a trapped raccoon! And they are all hounds. Too much can go wrong.

Her only excuse is she's ignorant about animals plus she's not the brightest light on the Christmas tree herself to start with, she's a fool whether she was wakened from a sound sleep or not. Even half asleep some kind of natural preservation instinct should have been telling her that every single thing she was doing (or not doing as the case may be) was entirely the wrong thing to do but she clearly doesn't possess any survival instinct.

What made me a bit annoyed was that the only thing she was really concerned about was getting it all recorded so she could post it on social media. It was kind of funny to see the raccoon sitting in the hanging ceiling lamp in the dining room but also dismaying to see all the dangerous mistakes that woman was making. I wonder if she realizes yet that she's so lucky the raccoon didn't attack her or rip the dog's face off.

They are fierce fighters. I once watched a video of a raccoon kicking the crap out of a fox that was twice his size. The dog in this video would have got chewed up pretty bad. The cat only came out to make sure the raccoon didn't tear open his Christmas present.
