Paul raccoon reaches roof after scaling downtown tower

He began climbing Tuesday, June 12, and made it to the top early Wednesday. "A technician is on the way to pick it up and take it to be released in a safe place".

"This raccoon has to rescue itself", Nelson said. The raccoon had been on the loading dock eating pigeon eggs.

We certainly hope this all ends happily, but we can't say exactly when that will be.

"This morning we were talking about this".

By Tuesday afternoon local time, it had stopped on a ledge more than 20 stories high.

Ariana Grande 'engaged' to Pete Davidson after whirlwind romance
What is even more shocking is that the two of them announced their engagement 20 days after confirming their relationship. Though many users were left speculating on the meaning of her latest post, some savvy fans made the connection instantly.

The adventurous animal was first spotted Monday on a second-story ledge of the Town Square building.

This item has been corrected to show the building is called UBS Plaza, not UBS Tower. It slowly descended to the 17th floor and hung out for a while on a new window ledge before making its way back up the office tower. Above it, rather than the slightly-curved spaces it had previously climbed, rose an expanse of flat stone. Anything more might further spook the beast.

News crews assembled, and gazed up at the animal through the night, occasionally bathing it with spotlights. But overnight, the nocturnal mammal thwarted that plan by beginning to descend. Many have been tweeting their support for the animal, as it stays stranded on the skyscraper.

Whatever fate awaits the wild creature, it's now achieved whatever level of fame that an animal hits when it gets multiple Twitter accounts. By 4:30 p.m. Tuesday, it was resting 23 stories up. "Goodbye friend!" the UBS tower tweeted on Wednesday.

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