    Police in Germany rescue man being chased by baby squirrel

    Officers in Karlsruhe arrive to find man unable to shake off tiny rodent

    German police have rescued a man after he called for help saying a baby squirrel would not leave him alone.


    Emergency services received a call on Thursday from the man, who claimed he was being chased down the street by the tiny animal.


    Police in Karlsruhe said the unnamed man called them in desperation after he was unable to shake off the small rodent.Officers sent a patrol car out to investigate and arrived to find the chase still in full flow. But the drama ended suddenly when the squirrel, apparently exhausted by its exertions, lay down abruptly and fell asleep.


    Officers took pity on the animal, which had probably become separated from its mother. Police said it likely targeted the man because it was in search of a new home.


    “It often happens that squirrels which have lost their mothers look for a replacement and then focus their efforts on one person,” said Christina Krenz, a police spokeswoman.

    She said the animals could be “very persistent, not just running behind someone, but entirely fixated on them. It can be pretty scary. The man didn’t know what to do and so he called the police. He was certainly feeling a bit threatened.”

    Poor little thing was just looking for a new mommy. The police named the squirrel Karl-Friedrich and took it to an animal rescue center.

    He needs to turn in his man card. A bull or a rhino I can see needing help with, but a fricking city tree rat?
