  • The raccoon stranded on the ledge of a building in St. Paul captivated onlookers and generated interest

"It's definitely a healthy raccoon".

The raccoon's adventures caused a stir on social media, with many on Twitter concerned about the safety of the animal or joking about the drama surrounding the daring crawl to the top. (Picture: Evan Frost/ Minnesota Public Radio via AP) St Paul Animal Control have now placed a trap and some cat food on the roof, hoping to bring the raccoon down.

As the animal reached the roof of a 23-storey building in Minnesota, those tracking the hashtag #MPRraccoon on Twitter let out a collective sigh of relief.

Among those riveted was Suzanne MacDonald, a raccoon behavior expert at York University in Toronto.

There will be someone monitoring the animal overnight, Brickley said.

"I would be legitimately devastated if it fell", a woman told Minnesota Public Radio as she watched the raccoon's climb.

It had gotten stranded on a neighboring building two days before, Nelson said, "likely on an errant mission to raid pigeon nests on the skyway".

A staffer at the private firm said they were still arranging for a live release.

And raccoons may be nuisances but, gosh, they're cute.

By midafternoon, the raccoon had ventured an additional 10 stories up, its claws somehow digging in enough to continue. MPR is housed in the UBS Building.

"It's nearly like your cat or dog climbed up a skyscraper, it's kinda the same thing", one onlooker said. It safely climbed down on its own. "The best thing is to leave him alone".

A raccoon scaling the side of a skyscraper Tuesday has people all across the country watching its every move with bated breath. I'm not sure that was true.
