Animals are always something to look out for while you garden or do any yard work in general!

An 84 year old woman is recovering after a raccoon decided to square up with her while she was tending to her garden.

This raccoon was so determined, the poor lady’s daughter HAD TO FEND IT OFF BY ATTACKING IT WITH A HAMMER.

That was one angry raccoon. The woman in question is doing better, after being transported to Yale where she received treatment for rabies and is now resting comfortably.

According to family members, she’s looking forward to getting back to gardening. Just keep a hammer near you, next time.
