A raccoon spotted in downtown St. Paul, Minnesota, Tuesday morning scaled a building and got to 20 stories up. The poor raccoon apparently got itself stranded on a ledge
As night descended on St. Paul, the raccoon appeared to start climbing down, before reversing course.
Concerned that the raccoon had become trapped, Twitter users called for a host of inventive solutions, including sending up a hot air balloon to take the raccoon to safety.
In the end, there was no need.
Earlier, St. Paul Animal Control had dispatched officials to the roof to set live traps.
Time will tell if they've worked.
