One of Toronto's infamous raccoons startled some commuters when it boarded a subway train in the city on Friday, radio station 680 News reported.
The Toronto Transit Commission says the furry critter made its way onto a southbound train at Bloor Station during morning rush hour, causing a brief delay.
TTC special constables used a special stick with a lasso to catch the animal and held it in a trash bin until Animal Services arrived.
TTC spokesman Brad Ross said it was a humane capture and jokingly asked the raccoon not to make riding the subway a habit.
Toronto Mayor John Tory tweeted that the city always knew rolling out new raccoon-resistant green bins would have consequences.
