Per Rylee’s request “show everyone what the racoon did” we are headed to get checked out for rabies following this unprovoked racoon attack. I can’t tell you how proud I am of this Brave girl!!

After a minute, Rylee’s mother finally runs outside and grabs the raccoon, the video shows. 

The mother attempts to pull the raccoon off of Rylee to the point that she grabs onto her mom for balance to try and stay upright.

Eventually, Rylee’s mother yells: ‘go inside!’ before finally pulling the raccoon off her daughter.

Rylee slowly rises to her feet and runs inside before the mom closes the door with one hand as the creature clings to her other arm.

The mother continues to struggle with the raccoon, while a dog barks in the background before futilely attempting to throw it.

Suddenly, you hear someone yell: ‘It’s a rabid raccoon!’ before getting it off her arm and throwing it as far as possible.

The raccoon lands, tries to head back toward the house before running away. 

It’s unclear if either Rylee or her mother were bit or scratched, though MacNamara’s parents said in the the Facebook post: ‘We are headed to get checked out for rabies following this unprovoked raccoon attack.’

They added, however, that they ‘can’t tell you how proud I am of this brave girl.’
