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".

Dennis Rodman: I got call saying Trump was proud of me
Kim was heard telling Trump through an interpreter: "I think the entire world is watching this moment". Nearly as if they had rehearsed this moment, Mr Trump entered from the right and Mr Kim from the left.

A raccoon has got social media users across the globe to come together to collectively experience an anxiety attack. "We couldn't imagine how this would end well for him".

Look, I'm happy, I guess, that this little trash panda made it to the top alive.

It's the whole talk of MPR today (follow the #mprraccoon hashtag on social media, and find more coverage at MPR News), but I'm nearly afraid to watch.

"There's something tragic and inspiring about a poor, starved, and dehydrated raccoon refusing to give up and scaling a high rise building just to survive", Eugene Gu said on Twitter.

"Guardians of the Galaxy" member Rocket Raccoon now has competition for the title of most popular raccoon. On Tuesday, employees occasionally stepped outside to further document the animal's ascent to greatness on Twitter.
