Check this thing out...a raccoon decided it would be cool to climb the OUTSIDE of a Minnesota skyscraper on Tuesday.
Tim Nelson, a Minnesota reporter, first broke the news on Tuesday morning and by the end of the day, EVERYONE was watching. I mean EVERYONE.
Facebook Live feeds, tweets, everyone was paying attention to the raccoon. It was tough because animal control couldn't get to the raccoon until he made it to the top!
So we all waited and watched...well, I didn't. I had to work. But I caught the highlights.
This poor raccoon apparently got itself stranded on a ledge of the Town Square office building in downtown St. Paul, likely on an errant mission to raid pigeon nests on the skyway over 7th Street. It's been there for two days now, without food or water. @mprnews pic.twitter.com/fVI5pmdCWq— Tim Nelson (@timnelson_mpr) June 12, 2018
Poor guy. Luckily, Animal Control got to him in time when he reached the top.
He is on the ledge on our floor. He seems to be doing well. We’ve been told that the building has live traps on the roof and are trying to get him to go up there. We all just have to keep our fingers crossed.. #mprraccoon pic.twitter.com/HY1PkuFKz0— Paige Donnelly law (@donnelly_law) June 12, 2018
