The pint-sized daredevil climbed all the way up to the 23 story of an office building before being removed by building maintenance.
For hours on Tuesday, Twitter users followed the exploits of the daredevil free-climbing raccoon.
For now, the 23rd-floor ledge ― almost the top of the building ― has become the raccoon's resting spot.
The animal was first spotted on a ledge of the Town Square building in downtown St. Paul.
As the United States slept, a small raccoon who first captured the attention of Minnesota, and then the world, did something remarkable. He started climbing. And he's now on the 22nd floor.
A raccoon scaling a Minnesota skyscraper may be the most popular thing on the internet right now and it's putting many people in a Marvel state of mind - complete with Rocket Raccoon jokes.
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. Officials set traps with food hoping to lure it and end the harrowing climb, the Star Tribune reported. The creature also had its own Twitter account, with one tweet saying, "I made a big mistake".
Onlookers and reporters tracked the critter's progress as it scaled the 25-storey UBS Tower.
