It was dubbed the #MPRraccoon because Minnesota Public Radio, whose offices are in a nearby building, documented the animal's long, unusual trip. "But you don't see them scaling office towers", Mr Nelson said.

People across the nation are hoping for a safe ending for the #MPRraccoon, who has become a sensation as he began to climb higher and higher on UBS Tower in downtown St. Paul.

"To think that one of these little animals would top the trending on Twitter is a complete surprise to me", he said.

The UBS Plaza building is 25 stories tall. Late Tuesday morning, June 12, maintenance employees of St. Paul's Town Square building tried to tempt the raccoon down with a long pole, but the critter was having none of it.

"We've been told that the building has live traps on the roof and are trying to get him to go up there", the law firm wrote.

There will be someone monitoring the animal overnight, Brickley said. Many have been tweeting their support for the animal, as it stays stranded on the skyscraper. By 4:30 p.m. Tuesday, it was resting 23 stories up. After several hours, and hundreds of baited-breath Twitter inquiries, UBS's management tweeted a photo of the animal, and noted it was alive and well.

Climbing high above the city of St. Paul, Minnesota, a masked hero enthralled a city and captured the hearts of its residents.

A raccoon in the USA state of Minnesota entralled the country on Tuesday and Wednesday as it scaled a 24-story skyscraper in downtown St. Paul.

Of course, Twitter being Twitter, there's already an account for the MPRRaccoon with a sassy, liberal voice.
