When building workers attempted to nab the raccoon from the ledge, it scurried over to UBS Plaza. That’s when it started climbing.
Eventually, the raccoon settled into a nook next to a window about 20 stories up.
Naturally, someone who is decidedly not the raccoon has started a Twitter account on the critter’s behalf.READ MORE: Businesses Owners On The Block Protest Proposal To Close Establishments On The Street By 10 P.M.
Meanwhile, someone who also is decidedly not the raccoon started a rival Twitter account.
Just before 3:30 Central time, the raccoon climbed up another story, then settled for another rest on a window ledge.
