A call to 911 alerted police to the strange site. When police arrived they found the unnamed man placing marshmallows around the dead animal’s body.
The Mukilteo, Washington police blotter says the man then told cops the area was a “hazmat or hazardous materials zone.”
Since there’s no specific law against dragging a dead raccoon on a leash down the road while screaming, the fellow was not arrested.
No word on the racoon's cause of death or relationship to the dude dragging it.
According to reports in the Daily Herald, the man left on a bus as police took the carcass for disposal.
