Stranded raccoon scales skyscraper in downtown St. Paul

Stranded raccoon scales skyscraper in downtown St. Paul

Per WCCO, the raccoon was "first spotted at the Town Square building, huddled in a nook above the sidewalk", but when building workers tried to rescue it from a potential fall, it made a decision to instead climb to almost the top of the neighbouring 25-story building.

The raccoon became stranded on the ledge of an office building a couple of days ago. He started climbing. And he's now on the 22nd floor.

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.

Laurie Brickley, St. Paul Department of Safety and Inspection spokesperson confirmed traps are on the roof, ready for the raccoon.

The nimble little fella climbed 23 floors - about 60m - up the UBS Tower in Saint Paul, panicking thousands of onlookers who were following the situation on Twitter.

The skyscraper-scaling raccoon doesn't just have people keeping track to see what the creature's ultimate fate will be, though. CBS Minnesota reports a live trap has been set on the roof, with cat food to lure the raccoon.

"Any other measures we think would endanger him". We hope you make it to the top safely.

As night descended on St. Paul, the raccoon appeared to start climbing down, before reversing course.
