German police rescue man being chased by baby squirrel

The squirrel fell asleep after the chase

A man called Germany's police emergency number after being terrorized by a baby squirrel, police in the south western city of Karlsruhe said on Friday.

A tweet from police in the German city of Karlsruhe shows a baby squirrel that was rescued after intently chasing a man on Thursday. According to a police report of the incident, officers arrived at the scene in a patrol vehicle to find that the unnamed man was indeed being chased by a squirrel.

In somewhat related squirrel news, a woman called Stuttgart police after seeing a puppy on the train tracks.

Police spokeswoman Christina Krenz told the Guardian squirrels that have lost their mothers can focus their attention on one person as a replacement.

Officers took pity on the animal, which had probably become separated from its mother.

The squirrel was taken into custody after it abruptly fell asleep.

"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". "The officers thought up a name that would suit the baby squirrel".

'The animal is now in [an animal rescue centre] and is well looked after.
