Raccoon Removed from Toronto Subway
By now everybody has heard about the ‘subway raccoon’, that actually didn’t have to be removed, as it decided to leave the subway! Seems like most people in Toronto, including some of our elected officials, find the incident comical, but raccoon removal is in fact serious business! For instance, it’s not hard to imagine the kinds of lawsuits the city and TTC could have faced, if somebody got scratched or worse.
Raccoon removal and control needs to be reassessed and perhaps overhauled; incidents like this should be a reminder of that fact more than brushed off as funny. Proper studies and planning would be beneficial to the animals as well as the Torontonians.

Raccoon removal is even more important these days. According to the Globe and Mail, fifth raccoon rabies case was confirmed in Ontario in December 2015. This is a clear reemergence of raccoon rabies, as for a long time it was considered completely eliminated.
Proper raccoon removal and control is now even more important. The last thing anybody wants is a raccoon rabies outbreak in Toronto. Once again, the City of Toronto would have to involved in any meaningful solution. The effort would ideally be a collaboration between the city of Toronto and professional raccoon removal companies in Toronto.
