Man Calls The Cops For Help After Being Chased By A Baby Squirrel For Blocks

Though it's a clear FML that a grown man required police help to get a an adorable baby squirrel to leave him alone, this story should also satisfy you feel-good quota of the week.

Police in Karlsruhe, Germany recieved a call from a man who was being chased down by a ferocious.... baby squirrel.

When the police arrived at the scene the chase was still in mid action, but it wasn't long after that the little guy gave up from exhaustion and fell asleep. Police say it is likely that the squirrel was separated from its mother and looking for 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,” Christina Krenz, a police spokeswoman said to The Guardian.“[The animals can 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.”

Obviously, police were pretty amused by the call and decided to nickname the lil guy Karl-Friedrich. Hopefully they've also adopted him and given him the home he's been searching for. 

The squirrel has fallen asleep in fright.” said the police write-up. 

The man who called the police originally is looking like a real jerk now. FYL, dude.
