We think we found the issue with the “up” escalator!

Raccoon-in-Escalator

Earlier this month, an “up” escalator at a shopping complex in central Florida malfunctioned. When maintenance crews came to diagnose the problem, they found this little guy inside the stairs. The story has a happy ending: Animal control trapped him several days later and he was returned to the woods, and the escalator is back up and running. For more information about how raccoons are learning how to navigate urban areas, check out this PBS documentary, Raccoon Nation.
