I've experienced the trauma of my own pets tussling with a raccoon under my deck. I was terrified that my kids and I were about to listen to the demise of our small dogs. Fortunately, with the help of a hose set on "jet" we were able to get rid of the invader.
But Kevin Rose has some real guts taking on the raccoon with his bare hands! Even PETA has given him a pass saying,
"It was a crazy move that could have gone very wrong for man, dog, and raccoon, but you can't fault a man for reacting to save his dog."
Have you had to do something out of the ordinary to save your pet?
