The Skyscraper Raccoon Has Been Rescued

The world can rest a bit easier. 

A raccoon that captivated the entire country on Tuesday with it's daring climb up a St. Paul, Minnesota skyscraper, has been trapped and is safe. 

The raccoon started it's climb early in the day yesterday and was the top trending topic on Twitter with people hoping for its safety. The critter completed his climb in the dark of night and reached the roof of the UBS Plaza about 2:30 AM. At that point, it was trapped after eating some cat food. 

The raccoon was taken by wildlife officials to a safe place. 

What does it say about us that we can be so enamored with a creature that none of us would ever want to own?
