The Beast of Toronto is a Raccoon

The beast of Toronto is a raccoon

As a follow-up to Steve Kupferman's excellent Torontoist article on the mysterious Toronto beast from OMGBlog, I asked animal experts from the Toronto Wildlife Centre and the Toronto and Region Conservation Authority to identify the creature. Both of the experts I talked to agreed that this was indeed a raccoon, and that its fur-less condition might endanger it come winter.
