Raccoon reaches roof of Minnesota office building as crowds watch

13 June 2018, 12:29 | Glen Norman

This all started at about 11 a.m. Tuesday when Minnesota Public Radio reporter Tim Nelson noticed the fuzzy friend trapped on an overhang near the bottom of the UBS Building in downtown St. Paul. "The raccoon!" And I thought, "Well, is there a raccoon in the building?" No.

The nimble little fella climbed 23 floors - about 60m - up the UBS Tower in Saint Paul, panicking thousands of onlookers who were following the situation on Twitter.

Just before 3:30 Central time, the raccoon climbed up another story, then settled for another rest on a window ledge.

But the owner says he hopes the NY racing stewards talk to Geroux about his ride. None of the other nine horses had a chance to catch him.

Concerned that the raccoon had become trapped, Twitter users called for a host of inventive solutions, including sending up a hot air balloon to take the raccoon to safety.

The raccoon was originally stranded on a different nearby building Monday before escaping to a nearby roof and starting its unlikely ascent, Minnesota Public Radio (MPR) reports.

It's the whole talk of MPR today (follow the #mprraccoon hashtag on social media, and find more coverage at MPR News), but I'm nearly afraid to watch.

The bill has also become of the focus of several attempts by MPs and peers to change parts of the government's approach to Brexit. Her fellow Conservative backbencher Stephen Hammond said: "Parliament must be able to have its say in a "no deal" situation".

We certainly hope this all ends happily, but we can't say exactly when that will be.

The last update about the raccoon's journey was staff from the local fire department were trying to lure it the roof to rescue it.
