How do you survive a raccoon attack?
Normal healthy raccoons do not attack humans. They prefer to avoid a confrontation and will do their best to escape. Animals with rabies, or sometimes, distemper suffer from brain injury and may be more prone to attack or bite. This is why it is best to avoid close contact with any animal behaving abnormally,
Raccoon typically do not hunt, prey or attack dogs. However, there have been cases reported throughout history. Realize most animals will attack if threatened so if a dog was scaring a raccoon, it would probably attack. But I doubt raccoons go out looking to attack dogs for the sake of it. Some raccoon get rabies which makes them crazy, they might attack a dog (or people for that matter).
It is possible, but in order to survive, the raccoon must have an extremely strong nerveous system. So most babies, or elderly coons, would not survive it. There is no known cure for distemper, so even if a raccoon with distemper was captured, the only thing that could be treated, was the symptoms alone.
