Apparently, this skill means buildings at the same time — the St. Paul raccoon offers climbed the 25-story office tower with relative ease. It’s normal for a raccoon to climb to heights of 20 or 30 feet, but scaling a big building in this way is very unusual. By the point the raccoon reached the building’s upper stories, a sizeable audience had gathered below, with binoculars, signs, as well as stuffed raccoon. A marquee on Minnesota Public Radio’s building across the street flashed: “St. Paul’s downtown raccoon reaches new heights.”
At around 10:30 PM, the raccoon apparently had provide power to climbing and began to descend, stopping on the 17th floor unwind. Refreshed and with renewed energy, the raccoon resumed its pursuit of the summit the next morning reaching the roof around 2:45 AM, where it was caught inside of a trap set by Wildlife Management Services.

They brought the raccoon away from the city and released her into your wild, thus ending the epic 24-hour spectacle that captivated town of St. Paul.
