A spokesperson from Toronto Wildlife Centre confirmed to Daily Hive that the raccoon is indeed, albino.
And mentioned that the sighting is “uncommon but it happens.”
“We have had calls over the years on these sightings.”
The spokesperson noted that albino raccoons usually suffer from health issues like blindness and deafness, and do not live long, making this sighting all the more special to witness.
