WHY DID A RAC­COON SCALE AN OF­FICE BLOCK IN MINNESOTA?

BBC Wildlife Magazine - - Our World -

Rac­coons are well-adapted to ur­ban en­vi­ron­ments, but like all wildlife, they can ex­pe­ri­ence stress, which they of­ten re­spond to by climb­ing. The fe­male that scaled the walls of the con­crete tower in St Paul, Minnesota, was try­ing to es­cape the well-mean­ing hu­mans at­tempt­ing to res­cue her from a sec­ond-story ledge. She climbed 25 storeys be­fore she was even­tu­ally res­cued and re­leased.
