Share She said: ‘It was actually terrifying. Share They eat anything from insects and reptiles to small mammals, eggs, and crops and in 2017 the RSPCA warned people against keeping them as pets. She called the RSPCA who told her because it was attacking livestock, they should call police, she said. Nottinghamshire Police were called to Clarborough on Wednesday morning after residents reported being terrorised by the pair of creatures.
Mrs Marsh claims police said they would put up a helicopter it if it wasn’t found soon, and a local wildlife tracker has offered help. They said they are going to send the helicopter to try and track it because of kids. He came back and he said to me ‘you are going to have to come and see this, there is something in the field attacking the pony and I have absolutely no idea what it is’. We ran in with two great big pieces of wood to try and shoo the raccoon off and try and get it to go away so we could get the animals out of the field. We ran out and this animal – we now know it’s a raccoon – was trying to attack our goat. Like pepper and cayenne, raccoon also doesn’t like garlic. The dog was barking like mad and my husband went out after her.
It was squawking and barking and my husband grabbed it. Mandy Marsh, 53, and her husband Dale, 54, were woken at about 4am by a ‘blood curdling scream’ and ran outside.

There are different ways to trap a raccoon; however, the most effective and humane is to use live traps which are cages that will spring closed and cage the animal safely inside so that you can then relocate them to a safer place far away from your own home.

Officers were called to Clarborough in Nottinghamshire after residents reported being subjected to a two hour stand off with the bizarre-looking creatures. The animals, which are described as being the same size of a medium to small sized dog, are potentially dangerous if approached as they are not domesticated. They issued a warning to local residents to be ‘vigilant’ about the animals, describing them as ‘potentially dangerous if approached as they are not domesticated’. Two ‘potentially dangerous’ raccoon dogs who escaped from their enclosure have been recaptured, police have said. Cuff traps easily trap household cats, which would also need to be euthanized, and sometimes trap dogs. Raccoon dogs are omnivores who eat insects, rodents, amphibians, birds, fish, molluscs and carrion, as well as fruits, nuts and berries. The raccoon was trying to kill it.
