@AlvinofDiaspar Yes, bad potentially for the museum's collection. I'm sure as long as it doesn't get out of hand, it's probably not too terrible. I mean it survives school groups. Though I bet Japan's wooden temples probably thought they were fun at first too.
What I was actually meaning to say is that raccoons are awesome.

The only form of raccoon that should be in the ROM is taxidermied or skeletonized.

Some years back I worked at the ROM gift store as a summer job. At night, we had to lock up all the food in a separate cupboard. Otherwise, we'd find chocolatey racoon footprints all over the place in the morning. Sometimes we'd get squirrels too. So yeah, there was most definitely a raccoon problem. And then some.

Guess they went with the lie instead of "no comment" or "please wait for our announcement" with @Ramako :

Just to clarify before we throw out allegations of lying, from what I recall the person I spoke to said it's "probably" for that reason, so it's very likely it was just a front line customer service person that didn't really know. It's my error for not making that clear earlier.
