Deccan Chronicle - - WORLD -

Min­neapo­lis, June 14: A rac­coon that be­came an in­ter­net sen­sa­tion by scal­ing a 25-story of­fice tower in down­town St. Paul was safely trapped and re­leased back into the wild.

The rac­coon looked a bit bedrag­gled, but healthy af­ter it was caught be­fore dawn yes­ter­day atop the UBS Plaza. Tech­ni­cians took the caged rac­coon down a freight el­e­va­tor to a truck, ac­cord­ing to Wildlife Man­age­ment Ser­vices, which pro­vides an­i­mal con­trol ser­vices for St. Paul.

“It’s def­i­nitely a healthy rac­coon. It’s in good con­di­tion. It’s eat­ing nor­mally,” said Christina Val­divia, the com­pany's gen­eral man­ager, who ac­com­pa­nied the tech­ni­cians to the rooftop.
