Its gravity defying grip and intense will captured hearts around the globe. And on Wednesday, the perilous two day journey of a Minnesota raccoon ended safely, the critter successfully reaching the summit of a 25 story St Paul skyscraper, where it was captured. The UBS building it scaled tweeting that after a delicious meal of soft cat food, it will be picked up by Wildlife Management, adding goodbye friend.
The raccoon a social media sensation as building tenants and news outlets tracked its progress. Catching it up close as it paused on a 23rd floor window ledge for a little R and R. One user tweeting, if the raccoon dies, we riot. How it found itself on the side of a high rise is unclear.
Reports saying it will be released somewhere safe. No word on a book deal or talk show appearances.
