I am at the scene of #mprracoon, already been interviewed by a TV reporter w/in 5 mins
I have seen some movement but for the moment he/she looks content to stay on the ledge
Got interviewed by another reporter. #mprraccoon is launching me to fame
Like an idiot, l told the reporter that racoons are crepuscular- actually not true, they are nocturnal. #mprraccoon
Mom just stopped by to take a picture of her kid in front of the #mprraccoon. He mean mugged it
They should rename the UBS building the #mprraccoon memorial center. Even if he makes it, we should still remember him
Car alarm going off rn hopefully it doesn't disturb #mprraccoon nap
Concerning thing is that part of #mprraccoon 's furry body is hanging off the ledge. What if he rolls over while sleeping?
If #mprraccoon was aware of how much this all meant to us, do you think that would inspire him to try for the top of the skyscraper? #goodvibes
I just felt a drop of rain, sky is overcast. Rain would be a bad deal for #mprraccoon 😨
So far I have seen young and old, rich and poor stop and stare at #mprraccoon. Without irony, I can say there's something wholesome there that unites us.
Update: a man brought a drone and attempted to fly to see the #mprracoon, he did not get close though
#mprraccoon is awake and moving! Just scratching himself on that same ledge
Update: #mprraccoon has apparently gone back to sleep. At least we know he's alive!
#mprraccoon literally stopped traffic for a moment when an SUV pulled over to watch and held up a metro transit bus
#mprraccoon is now facing the street, so we can see his cute lil bandit face. He appears to want to keep staying on the ledge though
There are hawks circling to the east of #mprraccoon 's building 😨
#mprraccoon is up and scratching his chin with his foot. Hawks are gone, leaving him to chill
Trio of tourists from the UK came by and were fascinated by #mprraccoon They asked for dinner recommendations, tried sending them to Mickey's but they wanted vegetarian
Update: I'm taking a dinner break in Mickey's. Cooks did not know about #mprraccoon although fellow diner did
Back from dinner, and #mprraccoon has retreated deep into the window ledge corner. He is catching some z's
#mprraccoon poked his head briefly, was like "screw it", then went back to sleep
For a wild animal that spent all day climbing up the side of a building, #mprraccoon has not displayed one bit of stress the whole time I've been here. That is one chill/brave trash panda, folks
So I can tell my grandchildren #mprraccoon
A woman said she's been here watching the #mprraccoon for five hours, since 3:45
@timnelson_mpr is here again with his daughter and their dog. The dog pooped nearby. Daughter to @timnelson_mpr: "why don't you tweet about that"
This is the dog, Luna. She is dead set on making friends with #mprraccoon
The lights on #mprraccoon 's floor of the building are going out. Could be they want to encourage night time activity.
I am taking a brief break from #mprraccoon watch since my phone battery is almost gone. Will be back.
I'm back at #mprraccoon watch. I'm told he is now at a vent just above the window he was at all evening. #progress
He's climbing!! #mprraccoon
Update: he has paused in another window. This time it is top floor, first from the right. Lights are on. #mprraccoon
He's bouldering between windows... #mprraccoon
He's climbing down, he's down a floor #mprraccoon
He keeps going down! No pauses this time #mprraccoon
He's about a quarter of the way down #mprraccoon
He's resting in the 6th floor from the top #mprraccoon
He's inching down butt-first to the 17th floor #mprraccoon
On the 17th floor, he bouldered left one window #mprraccoon
16th floor #mprraccoon
No movement in a while, appears to be resting. Winds have picked up a lot #mprraccoon
Shifted to the western face of the building #mprraccoon
Winds very strong. NWS says 32 mph #mprraccoon
No movement in a while. #mprraccoon
So @timnelson_mpr found #mprraccoon again, on the 17th floor on the side facing Cedar Ave
Someone is shining a flashlight up there, no luck in spotting it more clearly though #mprraccoon
Winds have died down somewhat but #mprraccoon still ain't movin
There's enough ambient light so we can see #mprraccoon when it moves between windows, but when it's on a ledge, too dark to see anything
TV crews have eyes on him through their high powered cameras. WCCO is here again #mprraccoon
