Raccoons found atop Ballard crane

SEATTLE (AP) — Workers using a tower crane to build a 304-unit apartment complex in the Ballard neighborhood have run into a complication: two raccoons climbed 150 feet up the crane and made a home behind the crane's cab.

KING-TV reports that has temporarily brought the giant machine to a halt.

A crane operator spotted the new residents while ascending the tower Wednesday. The general contractor, Rafn Company, called in experts who are trying to catch the critters with humane traps.
