Raccoon reaches roof after scaling over 20 stories of tower

Raccoon reaches roof after scaling over 20 stories of tower

"This poor raccoon apparently got itself stranded on a ledge of the Town Square office building in downtown St Paul", he tweeted.

Nearby Minnesota Public Radio, which followed its climb, branded it #mprraccoon.

Many expressed concern for the raccoon's safety - wondering aloud about possible rescue scenarios.

When building workers attempted to nab the raccoon from the ledge, it scurried over to UBS Plaza.

The world is now watching a pretty ballsy raccoon who chose to climb a skyscraper earlier today and is yet to come back down. Animal-control officials said the raccoon would be trapped and helped when it reached the roof, reported the Washington Post.

Ontario’s new premier isn’t sure if he’ll go to Toronto Pride
Progressive Conservative Leader Doug Ford is thanking the people of Ontario for giving his party a majority government. The election has also marked a stunning collapse for the Liberals, who governed the province for the last 15 years.

There will be someone monitoring the animal overnight, Brickley said.

The animal became a bit of a star on social media as people began to cheer on the creature during its attempt to summit the building. "We were all anxious about him", Sheila Donnelly-Coyne, an attorney who works on the 23rd floor of the UBS building, told NPR.

The raccoon, who was dubbed #mprraccoon, was finally captured after trappers lured it with food on top of the UBS Building in St. Paul.

It's safe to assume at this point, the raccoon wants nothing more than to get safely home-and we're rooting for him all the way there. The law firm at the UBS building confirmed to Nelson that the raccoon has been safely caught.

As of 11 p.m., it had descended to a window ledge on the 17th floor, according to Minnesota Public Radio.
