Imagine looking out the window of the 23 story office building where you work.. and seeing a raccoon looking back in at you!
This little guy crawled up the side of the UBS Plaza building in St Paul, Minnesota yesterday and so many people started watching his journey and posting updates, that he got his own hashtag!
#RaccoonWatch came to an end early today when he made it to the roof and was captured. He'll be released safely into the wild. And by wild, we don't mean downtown St Paul!
Look at that little face!!!
The city, state and country have been riveted by #MPRraccoon, who is still about 22 stories above ground after climbing the side of the UBS skyscraper in downtown St. Paul. We've been monitoring the raccoon's progress from outside, but Sheila Donnelly-Coyne at Donnelly Law Office in St. Paul captured this vertiginous shot. Hoping for the best as the raccoon takes a break.
Here's video of the big finish!!
Twitter was intrigued, to say the least--
I'll donate a thousand bucks to the non political charity of choice to anyone who saves this raccoon. I can't handle this. Poor dude. https://t.co/2F5reAKkKa— James Gunn (@JamesGunn) June 12, 2018
