The Trash Panda That Won Our Hearts…

Published On June 14, 2018 | By Matt McNeill | Afternoons

Twitter went nuts yesterday over photos of a raccoon scaling a 20-story building in St. Paul, Minnesota.  

The whole world was rooting for the little critter  as the hashtag #mprraccoon
out-trended even the Commander in Cheetoh’s nuclear summit with North Korea.



The tweets on this trending hashtag are amazing:

It’s as if #mprraccoon represents the “little guy”, in our current sociopolitical climate: climbing w/o a safety net towards goals, clinging precariously even at “rest”, discovering the reward for our efforts in life is some kibble, a cage, & a trip back to the ground floor…

SO YES.. The raccoon  made it to the top early yesterday morning.
They used a cage to catch it, gave it a few cans of cat food, and released it back into the wild.

THE WORLD CRIED.. THE NATIONS CHEERED CHEERED..
20 STOREYS.. UP THE SIDE… AND UNITED US ALL.
THE MPR RACCOON IS SAFE AND HAS REFUSED TO VISIT THE WHITE HOUSE. THE WORLD IS BEAUTIFUL. YOU CAN DO ANYTHING…

THIS BRAVE LITTTLE TRASH PANDA… SHOULD BE MADE INTO A
CHILDRENS BOOK…

Goodnight room
Goodnight moon
Goodnight #MPRraccoon
