Raccoon makes habit out of scaling skyscrapers

A raccoon scurries up the side of the UBS Tower in St. Paul Minn. on Tuesday

The raccoon, who was dubbed #mprraccoon, was finally captured after trappers lured it with food on top of the UBS Building in St. Paul.

According to Nelson, when a maintenance crew managed to get the animal to leave the ledge, it only jumped onto a nearby building.

Instead, it hopped over to the UBS Plaza next door, and began climbing.

Minnesota got its very own friendly neighborhood Spider-Raccoon Tuesday - and Twitter can't look away.

Minnesota's department of safety inspections has set live traps for the raccoon on the roof so it can be safely returned to the ground. They fear anything more could endanger it. It slowly descended to the 17th floor and hung out for a while on a new window ledge before making its way back up the office tower.

There wasn't much St Paul Animal Control could do because a rescue mission would be too risky for both the raccoon and the workers.

Meanwhile, someone who also is decidedly not the raccoon started a rival Twitter account.

"We feel that any other measures could frighten him and he could fall", Brickley said.

On Twitter, office workers posted photos and videos of the raccoon resting on sills and climbing up the building's concrete pillars.
