WATCH: Good Samaritans steer ‘confused’ raccoon away from traffic

Apparently, #WereInThisTogether also applies to raccoons.

Good Samaritans who saw a raccoon in the area of King St. W. and Shaw St. were captured on video trying to steer the critter away from oncoming traffic and toward safety.

But despite their best efforts to shoo the animal away from the roadway, it kept wandering back into the path of cars.

Instagram user @Nidigreedy told the Sun on Friday she was filming the Oct. 19 incident from her home as it unfolded from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. She suggested the animal may have had distemper, given its confused state.

“It just kept circling and circling,” she said. “As I was on a conference call, I saw people driving it across the street, trying to feed it, trying to guide it east because it had already caused a couple traffic jams from wandering into the road.”

At one point, a woman was caught on camera corning the trash panda against a storefront, throwing her coat over it. then picking it up and carrying it off.

“She’s talking to a cop who has arrived on scene, and he’s not going to get out of the car, so she starts following it in front of the grocery store,” she said. “She took off her jacket, throws it over the raccoon and walks up the street with it, past the cop, towards CAMH. It was sweet.”

A spokesperson for the city said Toronto Animal Services has no record of the incident.

“It’s possible the individual reached out to Toronto Wildlife Centre or took the animal to a green space away from traffic and released it,” said the spokesperson.

Earlier this week, a man was seen picking up a raccoon, rescuing it from busy Keele St., near Dundas St., before hopping onto a Segway while carrying the animal to safety.
