Rest in peace Conrad, a beloved procyonic resident of Toronto. He passed away unexpectedly on the side of a street.
On Thursday morning, a human of the city informed the local government services that a dead raccoon needed to be removed. But the agency responsible for disposal of roadkill did not show up. Over the course of the day, this raccoon became the center of attention on Twitter among the people of Toronto.
They named him Conrad and left offerings and mementos at his body out of respect for this loss.
Eventually, though, the city workers overcame their grief and tended to their duties. Late at night, they removed Conrad's body.
