A death-defying raccoon has climbed up a Minnesota skyscraper and into our hearts

quote [ Daily Bugle editor J. Jonah Jameson usually spends his time screaming for photos of Spider-Man, but today he has a new wall-crawling terror to worry about: The Spectacular Spider-Raccoon, a masked menace who is currently climbing his or her way up and down a UBS office building in St. Paul, Minnesota.

This happened in my neck of the woods today. Our local MPR Music station, The Current, has been calling out for a firefighter to come save it all day.

Good luck lil guy!

If you like indie rock and musical variety, check out The Current!

...and it's not. #mprraccoon, on the other hand, is ridiculously popular. As of 9:27 PM Pacific, the raccoon is still up there and getting attention.

For some odd reason, one of the major news site in Montreal is listing the raccoon article in the "techno" section, alongside matters of Cambridge Analytica and cybersecurity. I get that it became viral, but still...
