Raccoon on a crane without an oar in downtown Toronto – The Canadian News

A raccoon appears to be barking up the wrong tree, or in this case, a crane, in downtown Toronto. A raccoon was seen climbing a crane in Adelaide on Peter Streets Monday afternoon, but the Toronto Fire will not rush to help the creature down. They tell CityNews that unless the raccoon is at risk of falling on a pedestrian or damaging the crane, they will not send a crew. If the animal found a way to climb, they hope to find a way to climb down. The on-site crane operator tells CityNews that they cannot lower the crane the raccoon is on while a second on-site crane is running and that it will be running all day, so the chances of rescue are scarce. Toronto Animal Services is currently on the way to assess the situation.
