ST. PAUL, Minn. - The stranded raccoon that captivated social media has been safely released into the wild, after being stuck in a Minnesota tower on Monday.
People started using the #MPRRACCOON on Twitter to talk about the predicament.
The furball was stuck at the UBS Building in downtown St. Paul, 20 stories high.
After hours of waiting, the raccoon reached the roof of the tower and was caught by authorities where she was given cat food.
Is it too much to ask the universe to have a little raccoon safely get off a building?
