This right here is what you call adding insult to mortal injury.
On Thursday morning, a man came across a roadkill raccoon lying in a bike lane in south Boulder, Colo.
According to Sara Kuta of The Daily Camera, city workers saw the man drive up in a van, tie a “Get Well Soon” helium balloon to the poor animal, then take a photo.
Then, other people stopped to take pictures, too.
Never miss a local story.
“It’s a little disturbing,” city worker Kaylen Hollis told Kuta.
Apparently tying balloons to roadkill of all ilk is a “thing,” as seen in other social media posts floating around out there.
Pinterest, is this your doing?
Maybe there’s a point other than cheap laughs?
If no one else will say it, we will.
Rest in peace, little guy.
