Found them walking alone in Valley of Emperors [54,38 ; 43,51] and further to the north.
Tanuki (たぬき）is name of Japanese racoon dogs (there're two kinds of those: hondo-tanuki and ezo-tanuki; they're living in different parts of Japan).
I easily found them in cave which connects Zangarmarsh and Blade's Edge Moutains (Road from Orebor Harborage to Sylvanaar).
