    Woman, 75, strangles rabid raccoon after it bit her during walk in Virginia botanical garden

    A rabid raccoon reportedly bit 75-year-old Cas Overton in the leg, prompting her to fight back. She strangled the animal and then visited a hospital to receive rabies shots.
    If you bite, she’ll fight back!

    A Virginia septuagenarian strangled a rabid raccoon after it violently charged at her and bit her on the leg Saturday afternoon.

    The attack came as the woman was watching birds in an off-the-map section of a botanical garden in Henrico.

    “I tried to shake it off and realized how violent it was,” Cas Overton, 75, told the Richmond Times-Dispatch.

    “As I move backward away from it, I grabbed its neck and I knew that I couldn’t get away from it. If I ran, it would be faster than I would and would just tear me to pieces. So I threw it to the ground and I strangled it. With both hands.”

    Overton, a former Tai Chi instructor, swears she normally would never be so violent with an animal — but this killer critter brought out the beast in her.

    The attack happened while Cas Overton was watching birds in an off-the-map section of this Henrico botanical garden.
    “I am a terrific animal lover. It’s the last thing in the world I would have ever wanted to do, but you know self-preservation kicks in, and I guess a primitive part of my brain just went into operation and that was it.”

    Overton went to a hospital to start a series of rabies shots.

    She returned to the park the day after the raccoon rumble to finish her walk,
