Raccoon reaches roof of Minnesota office building as crowds watch

The raccoon became stranded on the ledge of an office building a couple of days ago.

THE raccoon that stopped the world has completed its breathtaking climb to the top of an office building in St. Paul, Minnesota. Building maintenance was able to get the raccoon to step back from that ledge but instead of safely heading down to the ground, it instead escaped up, scaling some 20 stories on the nearby UBS tower.

A raccoon stretches itself on the 23rd floor of a tower in Minnesota, US.

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.
