They were “terrorising”, “vicious” and left a village “under siege” – according to some headlines, but what are raccoon dogs really about?

Two of the curious creatures found fame after escaping from an enclosure in a Nottinghamshire village on Tuesday.

After a neighbour said one attacked her goat, media organisations around the world portrayed raccoon dogs as something to be feared.

But are they dangerous? How common? Are they raccoons or dogs?

Safe to say, it was a night Clarborough resident Mandy Marsh will not forget in a hurry.

“It was 04:00 and I could hear a wild noise, a noise I’d never heard before,” she said.

“My husband went out and was gone for about 10 minutes and he came back and said, ‘You’ve got to see this’.

“He said, ‘I don’t know what it is, it’s like a wild animal attacking the goat’.”

The couple fended off the “hissing” creature but not before taking a photo, posting it online and asking if anyone knew what it was.
