Rachel Borch is a badass. The 21-year-old was running in the woods near her Hope, Maine home when she spotted a rabid raccoon charging towards her. Knowing it was going to bite her, she held out her hands so it would bite her there.
Borch then spotted a puddle nearby and with the raccoon still biting down on her thumb, she walked the animal over and held its head underwater until it drowned.
The runner turned wildlife expert is being praised for keeping her composure and was eventually taken to the hospital for treatment.
