The TLC update has made these things even more of a pain in the butt, they pin you now. If you have low health, raptors will literally eat your face off. My advice is to hope you have enough stamina and movement speed to outrun them, otherwise you can't do much else.
These are Arks thugs .. they don't care what you are doing whether it be minding your business or if your just looking to pet a dodo. They will come and they will kill you and your dodo.. Run as far as possible swim as far .carry a bola on you so you trap your friend and escape . @chief3alpha xbox
