Borch, who lives in Hope, Maine, told the Bangor Daily News that her run was lovely, ordinary and peaceful ... until it wasn't. "I knew instantly it was rabid", she said.
She couldn't avoid the raccoon, she told the newspaper; the trail was too narrow.

She said she was on a jog when she spotted the cute animal on the path. As she was running, she encountered the raccoon on the path and it began charging toward her.
