|DON'T TOUCH ME|
DON'T FEED ME
I CARRY DISEASES
Maybe the raccoons who are so used to humans doing their bidding will get aggressive now that the food is not forthcoming. It will start off small, with them approaching people, tugging on their pant leg. Then one day one of them will climb up some little girl and yank her ice cream sandwich from her hands. Then they'll start ganging up, pulling down small children and frail older people. Or maybe they get sneaky, chewing brake lines on people's parked cars as they roll a joint or make out at night then following the car down Camillien-Houde until it crashes where they jump in and feast on the bodies before the ambulance arrives.
|That fine has some teeth. How will it be enforced, though?|
Next time I see somebody from Les Amis de la Montagne, I'll ask them about the story behind the sign. The last time I talked to them, they lamented about how hard a time they were having educating people about not feeding the raccoons and how they had put signs up only to have them all torn down. I'm curious how they got real action to be taken and how effective it actually is.
