Memorial for dead raccoon in Toronto

A dead raccoon’s had a memorial set up around him on a street in Toronto, Canada.

The animal was first spotted on Thursday morning.

But as the day wore on and no-one came to pick “Conrad” up, the pavement memorial grew with a framed photo of a raccoon appearing and a condolence card.

Then a red rose was put on his body and still he wasn’t collected by the city’s animal services.

Local residents were asked to keep their green bins open on Thursday night in honour of #DeadRaccoonTO by Toronto councillor Norm Kelly.

As night fell, candles were lit and more flowers were left with a pen to allow people to write messages on a piece of paper.

He also trended on Twitter.

Toronto residents even left a collection box to raise money for Conrad’s removal.

And then it was all over.
