“(CNN) As millions across the US slept, a small raccoon who first captured the attention of Minnesota, and then the world, did something remarkable.
At about 2:30 a.m. local time, a grainy live feed from St. Paul showed a shadowy little figure scurrying up and onto the top of a 25-story building, prompting an almost audible sigh of relief from the internet.
For hours on Tuesday, Twitter users followed the exploits of the daredevil free-climbing raccoon. The drama started after maintenance workers removed the creature from the roof of a St Paul office block.
Not prepared to take a hint, it headed to the neighboring UBS tower -- one of the tallest buildings in the city.
Then it started to climb.”

Young Turk (n), 1. Young progressive or insurgent member of an institution, movement, or political party. 2. A young person who rebels against authority or societal expectations.(American Heritage Dictionary)
"Obnoxious critters"....just like average "right" wing Americans who would much rather waste Billions of working class taxes on *more* war, bombs and GUN bullets to *Destroy* life with, than use even half of that cash towards the health and education of American children, pro-"life" style.
I see squirrels running up the sides of stucco walls often. Not slowly climbing; running. Pretty amazing to see how fast these funny squirrels scamper up sheer walls of multi-storey buildings. Never seen a squirrel run up as tall a building as this one.
Animal control in St. Paul captured and released it. Raccoons will attack people too. Had them in my neighborhood in Chicago. Tried to sho them away from my garbage cans by throwing a stone in their direction and one just looked at me like, "make my day".
samantha8188100 actually no. Most small animals will run. Also I didn't throw it "at" him/her as you put it. Look back at what I wrote. I threw the rock in its direction. Not saying I liked doing it, but it absolutely showed no fear. Usually this comes from habitualization from people feeding them and such.
"there is nothing better than an animal story to distract us from all the terrible things that are happening in the world" right! tell that to the raccoon environment and to the extinct and endangered species
For anyone interested the building was 23 stories high and it took the raccoon two days to climb, and the fire brigade couldn't rescue as it was too dangerous and they could let it in through a window because they are fixed shut and why didn't you show video of the raccoon climbing high on the building come on TYT this video was lacking in info.
I would have waited for this little feller to reach the top and just before it scaled the parapet, I would have shot it with the .300 Blackout round, which has become a serious choice for today’s consumer in supersonic ammo. Imagine this little guy falling backwards with his arms wide open from a single shot to his Procyon lotor, immediately incapacitating him.
You see, the .300 Blackout is a fully mature & superb cartridge, with the ability to launch a 120-125 grain projectile at speeds of up to 2400fps from a 16" barrel. It can even deliver match-like performance at ranges of 500 or more yards with velocities upwards of 2800fps.
I found 3 abandoned baby Raccoons on a field. I guess the mother died or something or someone left them there. I worked for the city landscaping. Anyway, they were friendly and cute. I found all 3 homes and 1 still lives down the street from me. He is trained and very nice and very smart.
Aviri Char how am I not thinking critically or constructively in my comments. I’d love for you to elaborate or actually bring any substance to your comments rather than just outright bashing. To me, that seems to be uniquely unconstructive and honestly, quite sad.
I'm a farmer. I've lost a lot of chickens and several cats to those goddamn bastards.We also had a bad rabies epidemic here a few years ago and it began in the coons. I and several people I know were chased by them and one little girl had her face torn up by one that got in the house during the night. Maybe I'm not cute, but, at least I don't go around spreading disease and killing things.
exactly what a brainwashed stockholm-syndrome-afflicted North Korean slave puppet would say -- "i only do it cause... i love... hate..." -- poor guy, just think of all the rehab costs our taxes will need to cover over the coming decade and more
Raccoons around my area are actually TOO nice. Like I've literally had one walk up beside me and I thought it was my cat, and freaked out a second when I turned around and it was a raccoon right next to me, and it just looked so offended and hurt. But I have literally seen these raccoons PICK UP my huge as cat and move him aside (peacefully) to eat his food. My cat was so confused.
I once saw a raccoon scale the side of my neighbors house. I swear it had to be the size of a baby cub. I’ve been traumatized ever since 😱😷🤢🤮
Making raccoons the creepiest creatures inhabiting this planet. 😩🤬🙅🏾♀️
YES!! I saw the same thing! Most people don't get it. They're big enough to hurt you. They can run, jump, swim, and climb better than you. Meaning there's no getting away. Plus, the damn things are pretty smart. If you don't have a gun, and a raccoon decides to attack you, It's gonna win.
If someone out there is reading this and has "made friends" with the raccoon out back, then you're playing with fire. Don't let the fact that they can be cute loll you into a false sense of security. They are dangerous and they don't want to be friends.
