Digg Founder Throws Raccoon Down Stairs, Video Goes Viral

Kevin Rose, who founded the social media site Digg, has caused an Internet sensation by posting a video of himself throwing a raccoon down some stairs at his San Francisco home.

On the video (below), Rose writes that the raccoon was attacking his dog "Toaster."

As Rose enters the video, the dog and raccoon are fighting. He picks up the raccoon, holds it over his head and tosses it down some stairs, notes CBS San Francisco.

Rose states at the beginning of the video: "I do not encourage animal violence. I wanted to get this wild animal away from us as soon as possible. Toaster is okay, but has some bite and claw marks."

The video was posted on YouTube on July 21 and has over 6 million views.
