What is a raccoon dog?

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Raccoon_dog

It is an animal from Korea, Japan, and neighboring countries that looks like a raccoon.

Are these the animals hanging around the rivers and streams in Korea? Been trying to figure it out for years.

When you think that a raccoon dog is just a made up animal when you actually realize that it's real and it's in Korea and Japan facepalm

Fun fact: The raccoon dog's ability to climb trees is shared only with the North American gray fox.
