A raccoon stretches itself on the 23rd floor of a tower in Minnesota, US. During a rescue attempt by three maintenance workers, the raccoon made a run for it and began scaling a second building, the office tower it now calls captor.
And a small crowd was drawn at the bottom of the building.
After darkness fell, it appeared the raccoon was going to climb back down the building.
Tim Nelson, a reporter for Minnesota Public Radio, live-tweeted the climb, including the good news that the raccoon reached the roof Wednesday around 2:45 a.m. CT.
According to WCCO, the raccoon began a descent at around 11:30pm ET, "making it to the 14th floor about 15 minutes later".
