Raccoon reaches roof of Minnesota office building as crowds watch

Nearby Minnesota Public Radio branded the raccoon with the hashtag #MPRraccoon, and it was soon trending on Twitter.

Building maintenance got it off the ledge on Tuesday morning, but rather than heading down, the raccoon started scaling the building next door.

A raccoon ended up in a most precarious place near the top of the UBS building. He started climbing. And he's now on the 22nd floor.

As the U.S. slept, a small raccoon who first captured the attention of Minnesota, and then the world, did something remarkable.

The critter was spotted climbing up the corner of the UBS tower just before 3 a.m. Wednesday, presumably to find a stash of cat food and a live trap waiting to secure it on the building's roof.

UK's May says Russia must change before it returns to G8
The annual G-7 summit appeared to have weathered tensions over President Donald Trump's threats of a trade war. Putin said Washington's decision to exit the agreement could "destabilize the situation" in the region.

"We have seen him pace back and forth and sniff, but he hasn't moved", said attorney Sheila Donnelly-Coyne.

One lucky racoon in the USA has not only made it (to the top of a building, that is), but has also gained world-wide attention for its dare-devil antics.

The MPRRaccoon also became the source of anxiety for Twitter users Tuesday, as people feared for his safety and wondered how in heck he would ever get down.

There is not a whole lot that St. Paul Animal Control can do because a rescue mission would be too risky for both the raccoon and the workers.

The raccoon has gained a social media following around the country, as people hope the little creature makes it to the top of the building.
