A gaping hole in the middle of the street in the Little Burgundy district of Montreal forced the intervention of the authorities this weekend.
Zackarya Oumamass, behind the Instagram account "Zackeur_TV" and identified on the social network as a comedian, first shared it in a short video which caused many Internet users to react.
“I was walking quietly down the street in my neighborhood, and presto, look what I come across. A goat's nest! says the young man, jokingly, to the camera.
The cavity, located at the intersection of rue Delisle and boulevard Georges-Vanier, is so massive that Mr. Oumamass was able to insert half of his body into it.
According to the observations of a photographer from the QMI Agency, the depth of the hole is up to 3 feet.
The City of Montreal said it received a report to this effect Friday evening around 5 p.m.

Cones were placed on the ground and orange paint was spread on them.
Efforts will be made “from the beginning of the week to repair the roadway”, assures Ms. Fontaine-Giroux.
The borough's aqueduct teams are already preparing to quickly carry out an intervention.
