Animal control officials hoped to get the critter down when it reached the 23rd floor of the building, but were afraid that personnel may startle the animal.

“We don’t want to scare him,” Laurie Brickley, a spokeswoman for the city’s Department of Safety and Inspections, told the Minneapolis Star Tribune. “The best thing is to leave him alone.”

As the animal made its way to the top, MPR reporters documented the climb. MPR is housed in the UBS Building.

How did the Minnesota raccoon scale that 25-story building? ‘Superpowers’ and ‘insatiable curiosity.’

  How did the Minnesota raccoon scale that 25-story building? ‘Superpowers’ and ‘insatiable curiosity.’ Urban raccoons have stellar climbing skills, no fear of heights and a go-for-it attitude — which doesn't always work as well as it did for #MPRraccoon.Suzanne MacDonald, a York University psychologist who studies urban raccoons, was similarly gripped, but she wasn’t worried. Why? Because raccoons — as their black masks might suggest — have “quite a few superpowers,” she explained not long after the drama ended Wednesday morning. The most obvious of those talents: a crack climbing ability.

MPR reporter Tim Nelson tweeted a video of the raccoon "doing a little grooming" from the 23rd floor's ledge, "now that he's a social media star."

Evan Frost, also of MPR News, tweeted the raccoon got a visit from the St. Paul Fire Department, and that cat food had been placed on the roof of the building.

Paige Donnelly Law, which is also located in the UBS building, posted some close-up shots of the varmint, which the law firm said "seems to be doing well."

"We’ve been told that the building has live traps on the roof and are trying to get him to go up there," the law firm wrote. "We all just have to keep our fingers crossed."

By Tuesday afternoon, the raccoon had its own Twitter account, with its first tweet saying, "I made a big mistake."
