Passengers waiting at baggage claim at Toronto Pearson airport Friday afternoon discovered a baby raccoon peaking out from the ceiling tiles above the luggage carousels.

Much speculation abounded including whether the raccoon — who was in the ceiling at domestic baggage claim — might need to be deported. (Sorry, this is Canada not the States.) And someone noted that raccoons have run rampant in Toronto public transit.

The airport, though, welcomed the raccoon.
He was caught and removed from the airport, I’d like to think he was taken somewhere to frolic and play where he’d be well fed. But that’s probably just wishful thinking.
