Small raccoon makes big climb up skyscraper in downtown St. Paul

A raccoon spotted in Minnesota Tuesday morning scaled a building and is now 20 stories up.

The raccoon received its couple of hours of fame on social media as users monitored the climb through the hashtag #mprraccoon.

At midnight local time (6am BST) it was reported by radio news reporter Tim Nelson that the raccoon was moving around the building and had moved down to the 17th floor. At one point, a small crowd had gathered on the street to see what would happen next.

Paige Donnelly Law, which is also located in the UBS building, posted some close-up shots of the varmint, which the law firm said "seems to be doing well".

Late Tuesday night, the raccoon began to slowly descend to the seventeenth floor, according to an MPR reporter.

Death Stranding Gets Two Star Actresses in New Trailer
Since the first trailer was shown at E3 2016, fans of Kojima have questioned what exactly " Death Stranding " is about. The scenes jump from one situation and location to the next which make it hard to put each scene into context.

The drama started after maintenance workers removed the creature from the roof of an office block in St. Paul, Minnesota.

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

Many citizens posted on Twitter they were concerned for the raccoon's safety and were anxious it had not eaten since it started its journey.

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