Move over King Kong, there's a new tower-climber in town.

A raccoon scaled more than 20-stories of a skyscraper in downtown Saint Paul, Minnesota overnight. People shared videos from inside and outside of the building, one of the tallest in the city.

The critter has captured the hearts of social media users across the country. At one point the raccoon took a break outside the window of a law firm on the 23rd floor, but it did eventually make it all the way to the roof.

Saint Paul animal control had dispatched officials to the roof to set live traps.
