A raccoon in St. Paul, Minnesota has become a celebrity after scaling 23 floors of a skyscraper. The raccoon wad first noticed stranded on a lower ledge of the building, unable to find a path back to solid ground.
A crowd formed and watched as the raccoon continued to climb the building all day. By the time the raccoon reached the top of the building at around 3AM local time, his journey had gone viral on the internet and was being covered by local news outlets.
At one point some workers used a pair of long planks to try and help the raccoon find its way down to the ground, but the attempt only scared the animal and caused it to climb further up.
Update: The raccoon was successfully caught on the roof of the building, enjoyed a well-earned meal, and will be released "somewhere safe" by wildlife services.
