Raccoon scaling side of a tall skyscraper grips US social media

We'll explain. The saga started on Monday when the small, mottled brown raccoon was spotted stranded on a ledge of the two-story Town Square office building in downtown St. Paul.

Internet-addicts among us may now have heard of #MPRraccoon, the creature seen climbing up the side of a 25-storey tower in St. Paul, Minnesota.

Apparently, live traps have been put on the roof of the building in hopes the animal, which has gained quite the social media following, will make it up there.

But an hour later he had still not reached the top, but was taking some time to get camera-ready in light of his newfound fame. "The best thing is to leave him alone".

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". CBS Minnesota reports a live trap has been set on the roof, with cat food to lure the raccoon. "We all just have to keep our fingers crossed".
