Last night a poor raccoon decided to scale the UBS Tower in St. Paul, Minnesota and all of Twitter was captivated with his saving.
How rad would it be if the #mprraccoon turned out to be Rocket and he spray painted “Make America Groot Again” on the side of the building— OhNoSheTwitnt 🌈 (@OhNoSheTwitnt) June 13, 2018
He is on the ledge on our floor. He 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. We all just have to keep our fingers crossed.. #mprraccoon pic.twitter.com/HY1PkuFKz0— Paige Donnelly law (@donnelly_law) June 12, 2018

The little raccoon ended up scaling all the way up to the 23rd floor of the building before taking a nap on someone's windowsill. The city had set up live traps on the top of the tower and were urging the little guy to head up there so he could be saved.
At around 12:38am Tim Nelson on Twitter announced that our dear friend #MPRRaccoon was rescued.
The story of raccoon friend became such an internet sensation at one point even the mayor weighed in!
Even wild animals know @cityofsaintpaul is a great place to reach for higher heights. We’re working with staff & building owner to find a way to help #MPRraccoon without further endangering it or staff by scaring or making it feel threatened.— Mayor Melvin Carter (@MayorCarter_) June 12, 2018
As of this morning it was announced that after getting a full belly of cat food, trash panda was being taken to an "undisclosed location" and would be released back into the wild.
The little guy even had to be taken past paparazzi! He might be as famous as Rocket Raccoon at this point!
Here is to a full life of stealing food from camper's at campsites and running around with Groot you little trash panda.
