A man has made a desperate call out in his local community, offering to trade $30 and a free McDonald’s meal for somebody to remove his dead pet.
In a picture posted to Reddit, locals spotted the sign stuck to metal poles around Darlinghurst, near Sydney’s CBD.
‘Want $30?’ the sign’s catchy slogan reads. ‘Help me hide a body.’

‘A pet of mine has passed away in his sleep. Rigamortis has set in.’
‘I’m a wimp and will faint,’ it reads.
The sign then goes on to offer a proposal in exchange for the removal of the dead body.
‘I’ll happily pay for your dinner at Maccas.’
‘Small body, no blood.’
‘Please send help,’ it finishes.

The sign has a mobile number attached, which has since been switched off, as well as a signature from the owner, Sam.
The originally typed mobile number was crossed out, and a new one messily scrawled at the bottom of the paper.
Users were quick to comment on the abnormality of the post, with one user writing: ‘Well he got his phone number wrong too so I wouldn’t expect them to have great spelling.’
‘$30 will buy a fair amount of Maccas,’ another wrote.
‘What exactly do we do with dead pets? I think I’d need help when my pet dies too…’
