A raccoon caused mass anxiety with onlookers in Minnesota on Tuesday. It became stranded on a ledge on the 20th story of the UBS building. Animal control placed a trapped and cat food on the roof in hopes they could lure it to safety. It worked. Wednesday morning, the raccoon made it to the roof of the building, but not before becoming an internet sensation. A local radio station created a hashtag - #mprraccoon and a twitter account was created for the raccoon. Employees in the building were even tweeting their good luck sentiments.
Twitter users watched the story for hours. It's still trending on twitter. And everyone breathed a sigh of relief when it made it's way to the roof.
