Raccoon nation expands to airport

The thing is, while I’m sure Pearson is a big draw for raccoons because of the restaurant garbage, it’s also in the middle of a lot of not-racoon-friendly industrial area.


There are hotels along Airport to the east, along with a convention centre, at least a couple of restaurants along Derry to the north, and a whole bunch of stuff along Dixie to the west. They probably didn’t come from the south across the 401.

I can think of a few places that they could have easily come from.

There must be lot of garbage skips around there. But there’s not much else in terms of habitat. They’d have to live like dog-sized rodents even more than they already do elsewhere.

The dead raccoon was retrieved by Borch’s dad, who packed it into a Taste of the Wild dog food bag

Very nice choice of detail there. :laughing:
