Have you seen the abominable snowman in Toronto?

It's beginning to look a lot like winter in Toronto: Our first day of snowfall, Christmas decorations appearing in stores, and, of course, a dude in a realistic abominable snowman costume stalking the streets of our city. Reports have been tricking in on social media and into our inbox of a rubber-masked, furry-suited figure causing mayhem mild bemusement at various spots around town.

A tipster writes: "I first saw him at Nuit Blanche. He was painting this random art and giving it away to people on the street. I thought it was just a stunt, but then I saw him on Sportsnet TV during the Leafs home opener." Apparently, the Toronto yeti's had a busy autumn; he's been campaigning for mayor, downing Vaticans at Burger's Priest, cheering on the Leafs, and doing his part to clean up our city's parks. Cryptozoologists: If you're looking to set up elaborate traps, I recommend the Chill Ice House.
