German Man Calls Police For Help As Squirrel Chases Him

August 13, 2018

I was chased by a bat once. That was scary. A goose ran after me at the park a few weeks ago, also scary. One time in Texas I couldn't get out of my car because a cow wouldn't stop licking my window (true story). I'd get out now, but back then? Scary. My point? Not once did I call the cops to come save me.  Not. Once.  

But this guy....a baby squirrel? Seriously? I'm willing to bet 99% of us would have been bending over and speaking squirrel, trying to get it to come to us.  

They say the poor thing probably lost his momma and was trying to find a new one.

“It often happens that squirrels which have lost their mothers look for a replacement and then focus their efforts on one person,” police spokeswoman Christina Krenz told the Guardian. She told the publication that the experience can be "pretty scary." 

Pretty scary for who? (Whom?) I certainly hope she's talking about the squirrel.
