When Wild Animals Attack

It’s the wild kingdom. Orlando resident, Nykeria Clark and her dog, Jojo, first saw a raccoon while they were out for a walk. The raccoon then attacked Clark’s Yorkie right in front of their home. Clark says she made a run for it, but the raccoon chased after them. The dog and raccoon fought as Clark tried to get in the house. When she opened the door, the raccoon entered right after them. Clark says she got a mop and tried to scare it off. It worked, but the raccoon hid in her blinds.  That’s when Clark called animal services, who took over an hour to finally get rid of the raccoon. Clark said she she took her dog to the vet the same day to get a rabies shot.  Jojo wasn’t bitten by the raccoon and has been cleared by the vet.
