    As a raccoon spent much of Tuesday climbing a 25-story building in downtown St. Paul, Minn., the world watched, terrified that this suspense story would end in a tragic plummet. (It didn’t.)

    Suzanne MacDonald, a York University psychologist who studies urban raccoons, was similarly gripped, but she wasn’t worried. Why? Because raccoons — as their black masks might suggest — have “quite a few superpowers,” she explained not long after the drama ended Wednesday morning. The most obvious of those talents: a crack climbing ability.

    They 'ride the wild birdfeeder' in my yard every so often. The standalone kind.

    Here's a coon riding a tree-one to the ground:

    Years ago, I lived in an isolated area. Starting out with a little mobile home. When you're young & in love, you really don't mind being poor. Had a large screened in porch where my 4 year old would play. He comes in one evening and I asked him what he was doing. He says, feeding the bears. Didn't give it a second thought. I looked out, and no bears. The porch was closed off with a door & heavy screens. A few days later he's playing & hear him talking. I look through the window, and he swamped with 4 or 5 raccoons, feeding them grapes. I just let it go until they left. Next day, I closed in the area above the screens where they climbed up to enter.
