Whatever your feelings towards them, Toronto’s raccoons are about to gain worldwide attention.
Our beloved city dwellers will be featured in the new BBC special, Planet Earth II. The raccoons of Toronto will be in the episode titled, “Cities,” that focuses on animals living in close proximity to people in urban areas.
BBC will highlight 11 other animals in the episode, including hyenas in Ethiopia, macaques in India, and peregrine falcons in New York City.
Planet Earth II premieres on Sunday in the UK, and January 28 2017 on BBC America.
