Raccoon scales office tower in Minnesota captivating the public

The raccoon was originally stranded on a different nearby building Monday before escaping to a nearby roof and starting its unlikely ascent, Minnesota Public Radio (MPR) reports.

There's a raccoon across the street that has scaled 22 floors since about 9:30 this morning, that's when he was first spotted.

A raccoon scurries up the side of the UBS Tower in St. Paul, Minn., on Tuesday, June 12, 2018.

It moved to the neighbouring UBS Tower, and started climbing up, not down.

The woodland creature also had its own Twitter account, with one tweet saying, 'I made a big mistake'.


A raccoon ended up in a most precarious place near the top of the UBS building.

A raccoon scaling a Minnesota skyscraper may be the most popular thing on the internet right now and it's putting many people in a Marvel state of mind - complete with Rocket Raccoon jokes. St. Paul Animal Control believed it may have been there all night before it started heading skyward.

About 2.30 a.m. a grainy live feed from the scene showed a shadowy figure scurrying up and over the top of a 25-story building, prompting an nearly audible sigh of relief from the internet.

We certainly hope this all ends happily, but we can't say exactly when that will be.
