Storyline

Robert Pitt was run over by a truck which hit a car. Pitt was wearing his sophisticated 'Rocky Raccoon' costume, for the PET convention in Vegas, so Grimssom goes there. Pitt was also lethally shot with a rare, powerful pistol. Nick investigates the fatal shooting of a man, left in an icy meat-locker, while security guard Petey was cuing up for burgers, and finds the case revolves around stolen ice-cream just past expiration date.

Did You Know?

Goofs

The lining of the costume (known as a fursuit) is described as latex. Fursuits are very warm costumes, and latex (which traps heat) would make it worse. For this reason, latex would not be used in a real fursuit, particularly in Nevada. See more »

Hilarious or Horribly Cringe-Worthy? Why Not Both....
23 April 2014 | by See all my reviews

It's funny how when everyone (and I mean EVERYONE) talks about this episode they always focus on the furry-convention mystery and not on the freezer mystery, this shows you how much of an impact the first mystery played on people's perspectives. Some people love this episode, some people hate it, for me it's a weird mix of hilarity and cringing. First off it's pretty hilarious how the makers of the show took an aspect of a sub-culture and completely ran with it in the weirdest way possible. The amount of weird things in this episode makes it weirdly hilarious to me..........

1) Who hosts a furry convention in Las Vegas during the Summer? Fursuits are moving ovens, one does not simply wear one in the heat of the Nevada. To top that off, how did they get enough money to afford a venue in Las Vegas anyways? 2) The fursuits portrayed in the episode are poorly constructed and clunky, these must be the most mediocre furries I've ever seen! They look more like second-rate used baseball mascots from a local high-school then something someone would spend lots of time and money to make.

3) Our "heroes" bringing in lawyer wearing the blue cat costume into the station for questioning! That was so overly-bizarre that I couldn't believe someone actually wrote that, I mean you don't get any more bizarre then the sight of a balding lawyer being handcuffed and escorted into a police station while dressed as a blue "girl" cat.

4) So let me get this correct: the rancher who wildly shoots at a busy high-way because he sees a man in a raccoon-suit isn't charged with murder or the endangerment of other drivers. This would NEVER happen in real-life, believe me....

Of course then we get into the more.... messed up aspects of this episode. I don't want to go into detail on what happens at the convention during the episode, but believe me, it is really messed up and vomit-inducing.
