Raccoon scales 23 floors up Minnesota building, grips nation in dramatic saga

A raccoon stranded on the ledge of a building in the U.S. city of St Paul, Minnesota, captivated onlookers and generated interest on social media after it started scaling an office building.

The pint-sized daredevil climbed all the way up to the 23 story of an office building before being removed by building maintenance.

There's a raccoon across the street that has scaled 22 floors since about 9:30 this morning, that's when he was first spotted.

The adventure started on Monday when, according to one local reporter the raccoon got stranded, "likely on an errant mission to raid pigeon nests".

Minnesota Public Radio branded the raccoon with the hashtag #mprraccoon, which became the top trend on Twitter.

It moved to the neighbouring UBS Tower, and started climbing up, not down.

A raccoon got itself into quite the predicament while scaling a tower in St. Paul, Minnesota.

The raccoon has gotten Twitter so excited that someone has even started an account on the critter's behalf: "The St. Paul Raccoon".

Paige Donnelly Law, which is also located in the UBS building, posted some close-up shots of the varmint, which the law firm said "seems to be doing well".

There's a trap set on the roof, but so far, it's not known if the raccoon has been captured.
