Think you’re safe because you live in the suburbs? Think again! The next time you’re taking out the trash, a crazy raccoon could be waiting to take you out. A raccoon will most likely only attack you if it’s rabid, which means that you pretty much have to kill/incapacitate it. If you don’t have a bludgeoning object, try using your feet to stomp it and try to keep your exposed skin away from its mouth. Then get your ass to a hospital to get tested for rabies.
