Raccoon goes looking for food and dog attacks it. Raccoon fights back and the dog is losing so dog owner comes out and throws Raccoon. I can see a cat smacking that dog around.

Are raccoons aggressive?  I always thought they were cute.  This is based solely on the Canadian cartoon from the late 80's.

Yeah they can be very aggressive

 

I was sorta joking.  Do you not recall the Raccoons cartoon series????

This guy risked getting bitten himself, and grabbing the animal increased the chances of that happening.

 

He could have grabbed his dog, tossed him up the stairs, and scared off the raccoon.

 

Barring that, it also would have been quicker to just toss the animal over the fence. He really had to wind up to throw it down the stairs, and that's more time for the animal to have scratched or bitten him.

He used excessive force, which looks like it scared the raccoon.

To the people that have had raccoons as pets -- you should be ashamed. Wild animals are NOT pets. They are NOT supposed to be kept as pet. They're wild. You think you're looking out for the animals welfare by keeping a wild animal, but you're not.

 

And it's not just raccoons. *smh* People are so silly.

Considering a farmer might just as easily shoot anything messing with his animals, I certainly wouldn't call that excessive.

 

Furthermore, if it were a person attacking my dog, I'd probably have thrown his ass down the stairs as well. Not sure why I'd give preferential treatment to a raccoon. :ermm:

 

(and for the record, I've actually pet a raccoon before and love the little guys)

Or the raccoon would have bitten him as he was trying to free the dog.

yeah, all this bull* comments...  grabbing a dog, and tossing his up the stairs???  are you kidding me??? it would open his to attack from the racoon.

acting on the racoon first was the only viable option!   and under the circumstances, it worked pretty well~!

I do not know what people expected him to do and say it was a bad decision.  Was he just supposed to sit there and let them resolve it themselves (possible injuring the dog)?  Was he supposed to shoot (even if he had a gun) the raccoon (and possibly injuring the dog)?  Was he supposed to try to pry the raccoon by using a stick (possibly making the raccoon attack him instead of the dog)?  Was he supposed to take a few minutes and put on proper protective equipment (what if he doesn't have any?) and then try to resolve the situation (by then the raccoon could have severely injured the dog)?

Animal cruelty?  It was attacking his dog it gives him every right for him to that to the raccoon.  Yeah sure the second throw was too much but whatever not like he was getting off hurting the animal or else he would be harming his dog to like any sociopath.  I feel sorry for people who say this is animal cruelty because by the time he would have called animal control his dog could have gotten rabies or died from a raccoon bite.

Raccoons and dogs don't have opposable thumbs. There's not much to separating two small mammals. Lifting the raccoon easily separated the two animals, so he could have done the same picking up his dog and kicking the raccoon away simultaneously.

 

As you can also see from the second camera angle, there was an open gate to the left. That's how the raccoon entered that area in the first place. If anything, he could have easily thrown the animal to the left and then closed the gate. His throwing the raccoon down the stairs and then immediately running down the stairs shows an intent to kill the animal, despite his saying that he doesn't encourage animal violence.

It was at the moment situation, do you understand?  Kevin probably panicked and I am pretty sure he was freaked out by the raccoon himself also.  So what you are saying because he does not encourage violence towards animals he has no right to defend himself and his dog from a violent animal?  This sounds like Kevin was George Zimmerman and the raccoon was Treyvon Martin I guess you can never defend yourself even from a violent animal.  Sorry, but you need to understand the difference being cruel to a innocent animal or protecting yourself from a violent animal.

Does your imagination really suck that bad you can't put yourself in a panic state of mind?

Also, yes, raccoons do have opposable thumbs. Some people should really just stop being armchair judgementalists.
