ST PAUL, Minn. (CBS) -

A raccoon spotted in downtown St. Paul Tuesday morning scaled a building and is now more than 20 stories up.

The critter was first spotted at the Town Square building, huddled in a nook above the sidewalk.

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.

Meanwhile, someone who also is decidedly not the raccoon started a rival Twitter account.

Just before 3:30, the raccoon climbed up another story, then settled for another rest on a window ledge.

Animal control officials then announced their plan of action.
