Snake-eating Raccoon


I am going for the prize for oddest graffiti with this post. I am not sure what it represents but I found this "paper graffiti" stuck on the wall of a very private tennis club (indoor clay courts & very deco interior & no signage) in the city. It was gone within the day! Fierce & bold raccoons roam our city in huge numbers at night but I don't know if they would take on a snake!

Depends on the snake, I think. Probably not a rattler, though! Strange "graffiti."

Hmmm... I haven't seen these. BUt then again I haven't been looking for them. Quite odd!

weird 'graffiti! i actually like this type of easily removed (if you want) graffiti - paper! non destructive to the building. at first glance i thought the raccoon was simply standing on a branch. snakes that size in toronto!? you find such interesting buildings, art and the unusual! love your blog redpat. thanks

Have you been following the antics of the twitter feed for @city_racoon? maybe this was his doing?!

Posting graffiti is bad enough, but to post stuff that has one scratching one's head is worse! What the heck would this mean?

I name you the winner. I googled Busk and found lots of terms for it. There is a movie about street art & performance called Busk. To play music or perform in public place while soliciting for money.

That is a great find. I never saw a real raccoon until I moved here.

This is a very brave (and cute) raccoon! ;-)

Yup you definitely win Red, that's WEIRD!! How funny that it disappeared so quickly too, not private tennis club artwork I guess!

Nice graphic. Busk is out of England, lucky you to have captured one of his before it was taken down,
