In Boulder, CO a raccoon was killed when it was hit by a car. Not a terribly rare occurrence there or anywhere. What is uncommon is somebody going up to the dead raccoon and tying a “get well soon” balloon to its leg. I guess it would brighten up the experience for the crew responsible for cleaning up roadkill.
Raccoon aficionados will recall that a similar event occurred last year in Toronto. But then people attaching “get well soon” sentiments to dead animals is sort of a thing. The Internet, as always is set to meme the world.
