Donna Sanginario, 70, tells Inside Edition, “This thing was not gonna leave me alone.”
“I’m screaming wicked loud. He’s screeching, and we’re like having a ‘Crocodile Dundee’ attack,” she said.
The sweatshirt she was wearing had blood and a hole on it after the scary attack.
Finally, after screaming for help, the raccoon let go. Sanginario called 911, and even the operator found it hard to believe.
Sanginario shared photos of the bites and injuries she suffered from the tussle. She says she feels lucky to be alive.
“My heart was racing so fast. I literally thought I was having a heart attack,” Sanginario said.
