MPR Raccoon Rescued

Raccoon Is Rescued Atop Building In Minnesota, After Capturing Fans Worldwide

Spoiler:
Quote:
For hours, its life was like a highlight reel of daring stunts and escapes – but now, a raccoon that mesmerized people by climbing a tall building in St. Paul, Minn., has been trapped and is safe.

"In our office we are just glad he is safe. We were all worried about him," says Sheila Donnelly-Coyne, an attorney whose firm, Paige Donnelly, is on the 23rd floor of the UBS building.

The raccoon was spotted more than 20 stories above street level, in a downtown escapade that our colleagues at Minnesota Public Radio tracked closely — it was, after all, just across the street from them, giving them front-row seats as the animal avoided death and capture with equal aplomb.

Dubbed the #mprraccoon on Twitter, the raccoon drew thousands of breathless observers as it scampered, scaled and explored its unlikely high-rise habitat. Its occasional naps were followed closely, analyzed for clues about its mental state, hopes and dreams.


Raccoon finally makes it to roof of UBS Tower

When asked why he decided to climb the tower, the raccoon chittered: "Because it was there."
