Baby Squirrel Chases Man, Calls Police to Rescue Him

On 9th of August 2018, in the German City of Karlsruhe, a Baby Squirrel chased and troubled a man. He became impatient, angry and a bit threatened before calling a Police emergency number. A patrol came to the scene to investigate into the matter and rescue the man. However, they did not face much trouble to diffuse the situation. The infant red squirrel got tired of the chase and fell asleep. Eventually, Police officers caught the stubborn little creature without much trouble.

The squirrels that lost their mothers can focus their attention on one person as a replacement, and it can be pretty scary at times. On the other hand, there are also few incidents when the tiny rodents become aggressive and attack humans.
