This raccoon may not have gotten a lot of attention from humans during his life ... but after his death he became an accidental celebrity.
While his body lay on the side of a Toronto street for over 14 hours, waiting for city workers to finally take him away, residents created a stirring memorial for the raccoon. Over the course of the day they surrounded his body with notes, flowers and candles, local outlet CTV News reported.
It all started when Toronto resident Jason Wagar walked by the raccoon's body on his way to work Thursday morning. Unsettled by the sight of a dead animal lying alone on a busy sidewalk, he tweeted at Toronto City Services.
