The founder of Digg, Kevin Rose, found himself in a strange situation this weekend.

After overhearing his dog crying and yelping, Kevin went to investigate and found his dog being attacked by a raccoon.

Kevin grabbed the raccoon and threw it down a nearby flight of stairs.

The confrontation was caught on surveillance video.

Kevin says his dog is fine aside from a few bites and scratches. He also notes in the video that he does not condone animal violence. He was just protecting his dog.
