Yes it is. His employer paid someone to catch and remove that raccoon, he interfered with that and basically thumbed his nose at the money his employer was spending trying to alleviate the raccoon problem.

If you found a raccoon in your bank account would you keep it?

A lot of the projects over in SF have clauses written into the contract that say only the Project Ecologist or those authorized by the owner may handle wildlife. And yes, you will get removed from the job for violating this clause. The Contractor or Sub may even be removed from the project if it happens enough.

So take it out of his paycheck.

Employer gets his money back, guy gets his pee-pee smacked and still has a job.

It's SF, his employer is going to get nothing but bad PR for firing him, and eventually will probably have to hire him back after the public gets wind of this.

Last line of the article says that it's a bit more complicated than this. Sensationalist headline is sensational for the feels.

My guess is that the guy was fucking up elsewhere on the job and this raccoon stunt was the final straw. A shit bag emplpyee getting fired doesn't really sell papers. Shitbag with a heart of gold on the other hand....

Would you feel the same way if he had released a cage full of sewer rats instead of a cuddly little raccoon?

Let him take his bleeding heart to the petting zoo and leave the raccoons to pest control.

Raccoons don't play well. If he had released it and was bitten or injured in the process, guess who's getting the medical bill and most likely the lawsuit.....the employer.

And if the guy was injured, the raccoon is not going to stick around after he f#k's the guy up, he's going to run away and not be available for testing, or if he got raccoon saliva on broken skin , eye, mucous membrane ...... Guess who's getting rabies shots?

Raccoons also carry their own nasty little roundworm Baylisascaris. Ricky raccoon has been inoculating the area with that....and it can be bad news for people.

Moral of the Story: If you see a cornered / trapped raccoon or even one out in daylight, do an about face and head in the other direction. Just leave them alone altogether, anywhere/ anytime, unless you are properly trained to do so and have the equipment. These are NOT Disney characters.

Don't get me wrong I have no love for pests, I sent these two off to meet Mr. Gasman. I'm 2-2 right now, two others slipped my cage and these two got dead.

But read the comments under that article about 80% are pro-raccoon. I imagine his employer is going to pay for that in the court of public opinion.

Even if they documented it well, you still can't fire for that. You have to wait until they fuck up again, without a fuzzy baby involved.

So undermine what your employer is doing but by cutting a check back it makes it ok.
Screw public opinion as that is the same thing as giving into PC crap.

I love these bleeding heart morons that have never experienced these wonderful wildlife antics beyond watching a PBS special one time. You got one of the tards talking about it be unethical to kill them for doing what they are "programmed" to do. Ants and roaches are just doing what they are programmed to do too. So are mice, rats, and other pests. Most of the comments there come from people who you know damn well would happily exterminate the hell out of rats visiting their home or business at night. Hypocritical bleeding hearts, who will now insist that they would just pets the rats and pretend they were part of the family while they chewed holes in the walls, spread fleas, and pooped on the dishes. You know, because who are WE to take a life.

You guys are focusing on the wrong aspect of the story.

The employer was pissed because he stole a trap. He took someone elses property off the job site. It even stated that near the end of the story.

“We were concerned he had taken something that didn’t belong to him and left the job site,” Rossie said. “We asked Mr. Sutton to go home for the day, and that for him to remove any property from the job site is basically theft and it wasn’t going to be tolerated.”
