A baby raccoon somehow managed to climb up to the sixth floor of an office building in Detriot and get stuck, worrying employees and prompting a rescue operation.

Workers at the Crowne Pointe Plaza building in Oak Park noticed the animal on the ledge on Monday morning Jan. 29, but it is unclear how long it had been there, according to WXYZ-TV.

Video footage, above, shows rescuers capture the animal with the aid of a lift and net, but it soon scurries off, hiding in some very unexpected places.

“Every rescue is unique,” Laurie Briggs from the rescue crew told Fox 2.
