Everyone Is Talking About This Badass Girl Who Drowned A Rabid Racoon With Her Bare Hands

...

“With my thumb in its mouth, I just pushed its head down into the muck,” Borch said. With the animal belly-up, she held its head under water. “It was still struggling and clawing at my arms. It wouldn’t let go of my thumb,” she said.

Borch said she held it there for what felt like an eternity until finally it stopped struggling and “its arms sort of of fell to the side, its chest still heaving really slowly.”

After the raccoon stopped moving, Borch pulled her thumb from its mouth and ran the three-quarters of a mile the way home, where her mother drove her to the local medical center. Her father went back to retrieve the raccoon, who packaged it up in a “Taste of the Wild dog food bag” (which seems like a strangely specific detail to this story) and took it to Maine Warden Service. It later tested positive for rabies by the Maine Center for Disease Control....

I was once savaged by a hamster, myself.

Yikes.

Talk about a hardcore, badass woman.

Still, though, she should have ripped the animal apart with her teeth, ride to the hospital on her harley with a knife clenched in her mouth, and get a tatoo memorializing the event if she really wanted to get into the Hell's Angels...
