The world collectively held their breath, when a raccoon was spotted scaling a huge skyscraper in downtown St. Paul Wednesday.
The fire department even paid the raccoon a little visit. But officials judged that trying to rescue the pro climbing raccoon from the ledge would be too great a risk to firefighters to justify.
So the raccoon kept the attention of the people of Minnesota all day as he made his way up the building on his own.
When the superior animal reached the roof of the 24-story UBS Tower, the world cheered in relief!
