A raccoon scaled a skyscraper in Minnesota, on Tuesday, managing to climb at least 20 storeys on UBS Tower as onlookers snapped photos from outside and within the structure.

Minnesota Public Radio has dubbed the animal #mprraccoon, while the local Fox affiliate briefly set up a live view of its perch on Periscope. "The raccoon!" And I thought, "Well, is there a raccoon in the building?" No. He started climbing. And he's now on the 22nd floor.

The building emblazoned with the logo of the UBS bank is next door to the MPR offices in St Paul, Minnesota, leaving the public broadcaster with a clear view of the ascending mammal, NPR reported.

Yes, because this is 2018 there was a Twitter stream dedicated to a racoon who climbed the building and people were actually watching it.

"You can do it, Rocket!" they say at one point, a reference many were using to the character of Rocket Raccoon voiced by Bradley Cooper in the Guardians of the Galaxy franchise.




For now, the 23rd-floor ledge ― almost the top of the building ― has become the raccoon's resting spot.

"Any other measures we think would endanger him".

But an hour later he had still not reached the top, but was taking some time to get camera-ready in light of his newfound fame. St. Paul Animal Control put a trap and cat food on the roof, hoping to bring the raccoon down safely.

An extremely fearless (or extremely stupid) raccoon scaled a Minnesota building on Tuesday, shocking onlookers and sending Twitter into an anxious frenzy.
