Police in Germany have captured an exhausted red squirrel after it chased a young woman in Germany.
A video posted on the Facebook page of North-Rhine Westphalia Police show officers feeding the animal with slices of apple and honey tea.
A police press release said: “A very unusual emergency reached police this morning in Bottrop. A squirrel pursued a young woman in Oak Street.
“Officers took the pursuer into custody and brought him to the police station where it showed signs of exhaustion.”
Once it had recovered from its ordeal, the rodent is expected to be taken to a local animal sanctuary.
