The now-famous raccoon that appeared to be stranded on a ledge after climbing more than 20 stories of a high-rise office building in downtown St. Paul, Minnesota, finally made it to the roof, easing concerns that the animal could plummet to its death.

Onlookers and reporters first tracked the raccoon’s progress on Tuesday as it scaled the UBS Tower. By early Wednesday morning, the animal made it to the roof, where St. Paul Animal Control had placed cat food and a live trap in hopes of enticing the animal to safety.

The raccoon’s adventures caused a major stir on social media, with many Twitter users voicing concern for its safety or joking about the drama surrounding the animal’s exploits.

Minnesota Public Radio, from a building less than a block away, branded the raccoon #mprraccoon.
