Raccoon dog aka jenotskaja sobaka aka tanuki is cute fluffy piece of cancer which is spreading all over eastern Europe.
It all began when Russians thought it's nice idea to move these fluffballs out of Far East so they'd get better quality fur. They thought, they did - and now these furry creatures quickly spread thanks to:
-Living in the night
-Staying far away from humans
-6 to 8 cubs every year (might be even 15!)
-No natural enemies (wolves hunt them but these are only in the mountains)
-Ecoterrorists which told ppl who buy furry coats are evil, support animal cruelty etc (thanks fags, now nobody wants to hunt tanukis)
It's one of invasive species so it compete well with local foxes & badgers, it also is dangerous for birds living near water as it's hunting for hatchlings.
Various governments fight with raccoon dogs, but it's not too successful as jenots are reported to spread west, including west Germany and Italy.
Thanks a lot, Russia.

I didn't understand a single fucking thing in your post.
>>
>>2036937
Shoot filthy rusdian trash
>>
>>2036937
trapping season, free fur for the taking problem solved

I can't imagine the Russians would want more Japanese anything. And the only thing that leaves Russia is dangerous ideology.

so fucking cute

Invasive species are bad m'kay.

>>2036937
tanukis are adorable and you should welcome them with love
>>
>competes with foxes and badgers
Two incredibly common animals that won't disappear? It's an invasive species but they don't seem to be making much of an impact aside from a little competition. I doubt they hurt ground-nesting birds anymore than any of the other carnivores.

i think so too,
they are slower and comfier than foxes and badgers and more omnivore than foxes.
the only danger is that they might carry CDV.

>>2036959
the quality of the fur is not good in middle europe so hunters mostly just bury them.
it's the same with red fox and i think it's just a terrible waste and stupid to hunt them.

>jenotskaja sobaka
Jenotovidnaya sobaka
>In several widely publicized incidents, clothing advertised and sold as having synthetic faux fur, were documented as actually containing real fur from raccoon dogs.
kek

What animal class/kingdom are these guys? I have never heard of them.
>>
I like how the attitude with raccoon dogs was:
>aborable fluffy precious ball of cuteness
And as soon as they become a problem it's
>"cute fluffy piece of cancer"

I mean I would hope someone does something about it but it's not like the animal is suddenly the scum of the earth just because it's in a different place doing the same thing it always has.
>>
>>2037950
canidae
>>
>>2037958
it does the same thing it always has but the environment is not capable towards this behavior in some cases.
>no natural enemies, population will grow until there is no food left
>carries diseases that they are immune to but will wipe out other species like American crayfish in Europe
>is far superior to prey; like cats to flightless birds on some islands
>>
I want to find a friendly one to rub on my face.
