First off, what the hell is wrong with people who keep videoing and posting themselves do stupid/mean things to animals.  People get shammed and in trouble over and over again for doing this, yet stupid people continue to document themselves doing it. 

Second, I would have done the same thing the guy did.  Raccoon's are freaking mean and who knows what disease they may be carrying in a bite.  This whole animals are more important that humans BS is getting ridiculous.  This guy and his family or friends that were on the boat with them are much more important that a racoon IMO.  Where they just supposed to sit on that tiny boat and hope the raccoon doesn't freak out at some point and attack them. 

I don't at all believe we should be cruel to animals, but if it comes down to a raccoon drowning or a human being bit by it.  It can drown.

First of all, it began with "Florida man..." which is how hilarity usually starts.

Second, the guy never touched the animal, so it becomes a question of whether or not he saved the animal - and indeed racoons are not happy, friendly animals.

Last, it is usually best to never record anything you do; and if you choose to ignore that point, at least have the intelligence to never post it anywhere or send it to anyone. Ever.

For a good laugh, search twitter and florida man. You're welcome.

Racoons generally have short life spans around here. Anyone thinking they’re cute needs a family living in their attic, that will change their minds. Put the phone cameras away people.

Raccoons in my backyard during daylight hours are harvested. I have 3 Springer Spaniels and I want no confrontations!
When you are dead, you don't know you are dead.It is difficult only for others.

It is the same when you are stupid.

Regardless, the guy was an asshole about it and posting it shows even more disregard. Flip him

The video... an oft used and appropriate phrase..."ya' can't fix STUPID"...

people who live their lives on facebook and youtube never cease to amaze me...
Opinion,untempered by fact,is ignorance.

There are some who do not fear death... for they are more afraid of not really living
