Raccoons are medium-sized, omnivorous animals. They live in temperate regions. Like real live raccoons, they can steal garbage and items left outside, so don't leave your masterpiece items in the open. If any get stolen, the dwarf who made the item will get an unhappy thought which can potentially be extremely powerful and send him into a year-long tantrum. Raccoons probably will not attack your dwarves or your pets unless provoked into defending themselves. They can seriously wound or even kill a normal dog or an untrained peasant with no weapon. An armed hunter or skilled dwarf can easily kill a raccoon. They can also be captured, tamed, and raised as livestock or adopted as pets.
