In case the headline is not clear, this bulletin is aimed at helping out the cute, furry little creatures that are really quite vicious when cornered. It is NOT a warning to watch out for raccoons when travelling in or out of Billy Bishop Toronto City Airport (BBTCA). After Mayor Tory’s declaration of war on raccoon nation, the lovable looking beasts, when not looking over their shoulders, are no doubt looking for a safer place to frolic.
And when you think about it, what place could be safer for the poor creatures than on an island to escape the mayor’s expression of outright hostility? And what place on an island could be safer than on a runway with its clear sight lines in all directions. However, it seems even a runway on an island may not offer refuge. Take the case of predators like coyotes as this Civil Aviation Daily Occurrence Reporting System (CADORS) Number: 2015O1345 illustrates.
Porter Airlines raccoons be warned. You never know where a coyote’s next meal is coming from.
