While scrolling Facebook last night I was alerted to click on a LIVE VIDEO which of course I did... and it was of a raccoon scaling a building! Sounded way to good to be true !! 

Here are the details... the raccoon... now known as "MPR Raccoon" got stuck on the UBS building in St. Paul, Minnesota... 

Local news station MPR News began covering the breaking news!! During the day, the raccoon made it all the way to the 23rd floor and even stopped to take a nap on a window ledge more than 200 feet off the ground. 

Animal control officials placed traps and food on the roof in hopes of luring the animal to safety. But by nightfall, the raccoon appeared to be stuck and decided to climb back down. After returning briefly to the 17th floor at about 3 a.m. EST, the raccoon tried again and was able to scale the building and reach the roof before 4 a.m. EST.
