On Thursday morning, police in the town of Karlsruhe, Germany, were contacted by a man in the throes of an unusual "emergency." While out and about, a persistent animal had evidently taken special interest in him, and he wasn't taking it well.
Here's how authorities paraphrased the man's distress call: "Help, I'm being followed by a squirrel!"
A patrol car was dispatched to the spot, and sure enough, officers found the caller was indeed being chased by the fluffy-tailed creature. Fortunately, they were able to intervene — capturing the man's pursuer and placing her in a box for safekeeping.
