Squirrel lunges at officer inside home


Officers Sime and Dawson arrived on scene Friday after a call about a squirrel who was reportedly eating cookies in a house's kitchen.

A wild scene between a police officer and a squirrel was caught on camera inside an upstate NY home. Upon entering the home, they heard a commotion coming from the kitchen.

The officers eventually caught the squirrel, and released it outside. That's when the squirrel made its bold move. When authorities tried to apprehend the suspect, the squirrel gave them a run for their money.

When a child suggests that the rodent began playing the radio, one officer is heard joking, "The squirrel turned it on?"

"The homeowner was very relieved that their uninvited guest was set free", police said in a Facebook post.

And in this case, that includes facing a charging squirrel.
