New York City now has pizza raccoon, which may be superior to the legendary pizza rat. Pizza rat first encountered competition when double pizza rat was discovered. Pizza raccoon was spotted enjoying a slice in a tree in Central Park. But he did not begin his meal there. Anya Schiffrin was walking with a friend in the park, when the two spotted this New Yorker just trying to mind his own business.

He wanted more privacy, so he scurried in one fell swoop up the tree and continued eating. From the trash can, to the base of the tree, to the top of the tree, he never dropped the pizza once.

The circle of life in New York is pretty straight forward. If you drop or throw away any slice of pizza, some type of critter is going to eat it. And they're going to do it in public, because the animals of New York are just like its human inhabitants: they do what they please in front of everyone. Only time will tell what other furry friends we will see eating pizza in the greatest city in the world.
