Dr. Judith Eger, Senior Curator of Mammals for the Royal Ontario Museum’s Natural History Department, says:

“The Animal Rights People Are More Correct Than The Retailers.”

Judith Eger Confirms “The Widely Farmed Asian Raccoon Dog, Is A Species Of Wild Dog”.

“The Raccoon Dog (Nyctereutes procyonoides) is a member of the Dog family, the Cadinae, one of 13 families of the order Carnivora,” she says.

The Canidae Family, which is found around the world, includes Domestic Dogs, Wolves, Coyotes and several other kinds of Wild Dogs, including the African Hunting Dog and, of course, the Raccoon Dog, explains Judith Eger.

All the species in this family have teeth designed for eating flesh, she says.

The Raccoon (Procyon lotor), on the other hand, belongs to the family Procyonidae, which is also in the order Carnivora. This family is restricted to South America, Central America and North America.

“Because of their omnivorous diet, procyonids have lost some of the adaptations for flesh eating found in carnivorous relatives,” says Judith Eger.

Considering Judith Eger’s divide, it is safe to assume that any Fur garment exported from China, that’s labelled Raccoon, would be Raccoon Dog, not Raccoon.

Dr. Judith Eger’s Bio

Judith Eger is Senior Curator of Mammalogy and Deputy Head of the Department of Natural History at the ROM. She has worked at the ROM since the fall of 1968, completing two graduate degrees in the early part of her career.

Judith was born and raised in Dryden, Ontario. Her academic interests focus on mammalian systematics and evolution (including speciation, zoogeography and phylogeny), concentrating on bats and arctic mammals, the topics of her M.Sc. and Ph.D. theses.

Since 1970, she has conducted and participated in collecting trips in Ontario, Alberta, Saskatchewan, Nunavut, Colombia, Caribbean Islands, Kenya, Vietnam and China.

Her current research focuses on the systematics and biogeography of the bats of Southeast Asia, and is an extension of her earlier work on the biogeography of the bats of Madagascar, examining the affinities of Madagascar bats to African and Asian species using morphological and genetic data.

Along with other ROM curators, Judith is working with the University of Guelph on a project to sequence the COI gene for the mammal tissue collection at the ROM. Referred to as the “Bar Code of Life Data Systems” (BOLD), and lead by Paul Hebert at the University of Guelph, the project will provide baseline sequences for mammals from Canada, Mexico, Central and South America, southeast Asia and China. In addition to providing a species identification tool, these sequences are being used in individual research projects.
