‘Give him a burger’: Viral video shows raccoon walk around McDonald’s in Scarborough

A raccoon was seen wondering around a McDonald's in Scarborough surprisingly to the delight of some customers.

One cheeky and brave raccoon decided to skip rummaging through the trash and go straight to the source: a McDonald’s in Scarborough.

A video shared on TikTok has gone viral, showing a raccoon making rounds inside a McDonald’s as customers watch on.

The person recording the video quickly makes friends with the raccoon as the animal takes an interest in his winter jacket before walking out of sight. An employee is then seen trying to shoo the animal outside just before the video ends.

At one point in the now-viral clip, you can hear someone say, “Give him a burger,” which would be adorable but perhaps not the best idea inside a fast-food establishment.

Many commenters compared the raccoon to Darwin, the famous “IKEA Monkey” of 2012. One cheeky commenter noted that the raccoon must have been there to pick up his mobile order.

The feeding of wildlife is prohibited in Toronto under its animals’ bylaw, which states residents are “not allowed to feed wildlife or leave food out to attract animals on both public and private property.”

Raccoons are mainly active at night and feed on grubs, insects, small rodents, eggs, fleshy fruits (like grapes), nuts, and vegetables (like corn). City officials also warn against petting raccoons because they may carry rabies.
