Supikoira / Raccoon Dog

Nyctereutes procyonoides

Raccoon Dog is a member of the canid family and is indigenous to east Asia. It is named for its resemblance to the raccoon (Procyon lotor), to which it is not closely related.
It has expanded from its introduced range in Russia and is now abundant throughout Finland, Estonia, Latvia, and Lithuania,
and has been reported as far away as Serbia, France, England, Romania, Italy, Switzerland, Germany, Norway, Denmark, and Sweden.
