The city's mayor, Melvin Carter, assured raccoon-watchers help was on the way.
Even wild animals know @cityofsaintpaul is a great place to reach for higher heights. We’re working with staff & building owner to find a way to help #MPRraccoon without further endangering it or staff by scaring or making it feel threatened.
With no balconies or windows that open, office workers inside the building were left to watch anxiously as the raccoon continued its climb.
At the 23rd floor, it stopped for a nap, allowing time for more photos.
He is on the ledge on our floor. He seems to be doing well. We’ve been told that the building has live traps on the roof and are trying to get him to go up there. We all just have to keep our fingers crossed.. #mprraccoonpic.twitter.com/HY1PkuFKz0
