The raccoon dog, which is not a raccoon, is a member of the Canid family (which includes dogs, wolves and coyotes). Originally the animal was from the Pacific coast of Russia, China, Japan, and Korea, but has been exported to Eastern Europe and Scandinavia as a fur animal. It's an omnivore but apparently can eat toxic toads by using an "excess of saliva".

baby raccoon: I had a family of raccoons that lived on my back porch (yes, I let them) until the babies grew old enough to wander off. They talk with their mother with the coolest trilling noise. I loved to listen to it. When I got my retired show queen breeder Oriental shorthair cat & her last baby, they talked almost exactly the same!!!
