You hear your dog crying for help, you come outside and you see your dog and a raccoon ferociously fighting. What would you do? What this guy does is instinctive. Protect your own. I do believe in leaving wild animals alone when they're just peacefully passing by, but there is a point when you can't just let them walk all over you especially when you find your pets being mauled. Protecting your family or Animal cruelty? You make the call!
