🧡#MPRraccoon made it!

[ Edited ]

Around 3am, the MPR raccoon finally made it to the top 

of the UBS building in downtown Minneapolis!!

 

Has anyone else been following?

 

Twitter was on top of it...funny remarks, but everyone was

rooting for this little guy girl!

@MPR If you guys aren't giving away plush raccoons during your next pledge drive, I just dunno what to say. #mprraccoon

 

Giggle. And Twitter is filled with little remarks like that.

I hope they memorialize this moment!

Odd man out here but I won't be happy until this little one is safe someplace and that doesn't mean the top of the building.  I'm glad he made it but now what?

 

They said there were live traps set up there with food but no news as of yet what happened. 

 

Fingers crossed there is a good outcome to this.

I saw this morning that he made it to the top but I want to know that he made it back down and is O.K.!

@Lipstickdiva

I’m sure wildlife experts will keep us posted.

My guess, they will immediately determine if he doesn’t

have any infectious diseases.  If not, they will nurse him

back to health (he was skinny) & release him in a safe place.

I've searched the internet for information regarding his release....where is it?

I would reckon they won’t release him for sometime.

And that firstly hinges on the fact he’s not carrying an 

infectious disease.  If I see anything, I’ll post.

Wow!  Even my cat who was sitting on my lap was watching the raccoon, too.
