Toronto’s trying to outsmart raccoons with tougher and taller green bins – but apparently, constructions cranes are still within their grasp.
Crane operator Robert MacFarlane got a visit from a climbing creature on Thursday morning about 700 feet in the air on a crane at Yonge Street and the Esplanade. It came up the ladder to the counter jib, a part of the crane that balances the load to keep it from falling over. The animal was “totally fearless and intimidated by me,” Mr. MacFarlane said on Twitter, but he managed to shoo it down after a “hissing match.”
