The Twin Cities-based raccoon "apparently got itself stranded on a ledge of the Town Square office building in downtown St. Paul," Minnesota Public Radio's Tim Nelson reports. It has been stuck now for two whole days:
This poor raccoon apparently got itself stranded on a ledge of the Town Square office building in downtown St. Paul, likely on an errant mission to raid pigeon nests on the skyway over 7th Street. It's been there for two days now, without food or water. @mprnewspic.twitter.com/fVI5pmdCWq
Hang in there, MPR raccoon! We're rooting for you. Jeva Lange
Update June 13: Early Wednesday morning the raccoon reached the roof of the 20-story tower, and MPR reports it has since been "safely trapped." Watch a video of the raccoon scaling the building and miraculously reaching the roof here.
