Raccoon Scaling St. Paul Skyscraper Sets Off Social Media Firestorm

It was dubbed the #MPRraccoon because Minnesota Public Radio, whose offices are in a nearby building, documented the animal's long, odd trip.

On Tuesday, the building maintenance workers were able to get the poor raccoon to move, but instead of coming down, it began climbing the UBS Tower next door. At one point, a small crowd had gathered on the street to see what would happen next.

Though the roof was ready with baited traps, the latest updates appear to show the raccoon descending the building after reaching as high as the 23rd floor. He started climbing. And he's now on the 22nd floor.

Its travails captivated social media users.

The furry critter's ascent up the UBS Tower, as it clung only to the building's rough exterior more than 20 stories above the ground, started to stress people out on Twitter.

Just before 3:30 Central time, the raccoon climbed up another story, then settled for another rest on a window ledge.

"We're hoping the raccoon goes to the top of the building so we can help it out of its predicament", a spokesperson for the St. Paul Department of Safety and Inspection said, according to WCCO. By Wednesday morning it had made it to the roof of the building, easing fears that it would plummet to its death. He's going to get to the top.
