Baby raccoon rescued atop Toronto Star Building

The Toronto Star Building had an unexpected overnight guest. A baby raccoon, nicknamed Scoop, got stuck on a fourth floor ledge and the sweet little angel was too scared to climb down (I feel you, little guy, heights are tough).

As the Star previously reported, the Toronto Wildlife Centre planned to rescue the raccoon on Saturday if it didn't make its way down itself (have a heart!).

The heroes at Toronto Fire Services, however, decided to step in and save it today. Phew! You can follow the whole #SaveScoop saga here.
