A raccoon has been granted French citizenship after scaling all 23 storeys of the UBS Tower in Minnesota in search of near-expired cat food. Thousands watched as the critter made his ascent, feigning concern in their twitter coverage of an otherwise untwitterworthy city.

Having conquered the tower, the raccoon commented that the food was “still good”, and he is looking forward to his new job as a firefighter.
