Default Hunting dog question

Well, more coon hunting question than anything. Okay, so I was looking at coon hound videos on youtube and spotted this video. Beware because it is pretty graphic. To those who don't want to watch it, it is bascially two dogs fighting a raccoon with both dogs playing tug a war with it. It is still alive and screaming and you can see it slowly being rip open. And the people are watching and encouraging it like a good show.

Now, I thought coon hunting was a dog tracking and treeing the raccoon while the hunter shoots it down. I assume that accidents happen and sometimes the dogs reach the raccoon and a fight occurs and the raccoon gets killed that way. Or am I wrong? Do the hunters want the dogs to reach and fight the raccoon? Is it rare for the dogs to fight a raccoon, or is it more common for them to tree it.?

Honestly, can't lie that I'm having mixed feelings towards it right now. I seriously hope this video isn't a common event.
