Just look at those faces!  Oh, they look cute. But raccoons like these killed 10 cats, attacked a small dog and bit at least one pet owner in Olympia, Washington in 2006.

In Olympia, those cute raccoons were rabid when they killed the 10 cats, attacked the small dog & bit the pet owner.  Rabies spreads rapidly among small wild animals.
