The world is fixated on #MPRRaccoon tweets tonight and here at ELGL we can’t help but notice the significant #localgov impact that little Trash Panda – ahem, RACCOON – is creating. Here are our favorite #MPRRaccoon tweets (sent the link to your favorites to firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll include them in this post):
Just spoke with @cityofsaintpaul about efforts to save #mprraccoon -city has set out live trap w/food on roof, in hopes raccoon will reach it -they won’t try any other means of capturing it, they believe raccoon would get spooked, fall to its death -city will monitor overnight — Zach Tecklenburg (@zachteck) June 12, 2018
Minnesota fire officials and all government/local agencies involved need to do better and do something fast. The #mprraccoon will not make it to the roof and it won’t make it back down. We need human intervention to save this little furry guys life…. #imstressed

I know we’re all thrilled that the #mprraccoon is alright but please remember to not completely let your guard down around nature’s bandits.
