Watch as this poor squirrel struggles to get a stuck plastic cup off its head.
Emergency responders in Connecticut have come to the rescue of a squirrel that was caught in a nutty situation.
Members of Enfield Emergency Medical Services responded Friday after the rodent got its head stuck in what appeared to be a plastic or paper cup.
Video posted on the Enfield EMS Facebook page shows the critter wildly jumping and flipping into the air in an effort to dislodge the cup.
Responders’ first attempt to remove the cup was unsuccessful. The wily rodent hopped out of one officer’s hands and through the legs of another.
The second attempt proved more successful. An officer covered the animal with a blanket and held its body steady while another officer removed the cup before the critter scampered away into some nearby bushes.
The BEST squirrel feeder is a HORSE HEAD squirrel feeder.
Robert Krampf and his wife Nancy love to have birds in their garden, so they set up a bird feeder. But a nearby squirrel quickly realized where he could get free dinner. Their solution to stop the pesky squirrel was genius: They greased the pole to the feeder.
The Rock Squirrel has been raiding our bird feeder, carrying away pounds of seed. Nancy figured a quick solution. I don’t know which is funnier, the squirrel or Nancy’s narration.
For anyone who is concerned about the squirrel, he still raids our other two feeders and the vegetable garden. The tiny amount of Vaseline used is non-toxic, the kind used for lip balm. He quickly learned that this feeder was not worth the trouble, so we have not put more on the pole, and the birds are delighted to actually get some of the bird seed.
|There were five houses of religion in a small town:
The Presbyterian Church, the Baptist Church, the Methodist Church, the Catholic Church and the Jewish Synagogue.
Each church and Synagogue was overrun with pesky squirrels.
One day, the Presbyterian Church called a meeting to decide what to do about the squirrels. After much prayer and consideration they determined that the squirrels were predestined to be there and they shouldn’t interfere with God’s divine will.
In the Baptist Church the squirrels had taken up habitation in the baptistery. The deacons met and decided to put a cover on the baptistery and drown the squirrels in it. The squirrels escaped somehow and there were twice as many there the next week.
The Methodist Church got together and decided that they were not in a position to harm any of God’s creation. So, they humanely trapped the Squirrels and set them free a few miles outside of town. Three days later, the squirrels were back.
But — The Catholic Church came up with what was thought to be the best and most effective solution. They baptized and confirmed the squirrels and registered them as members of the church. Now they only see them on Christmas, Ash Wednesday, Palm Sunday and Easter.
Not much was heard about the Jewish Synagogue, but they quietly took one squirrel and had a short service with him called Bris, (in which his circumcision occurred) and they haven’t seen a squirrel on the property since.
Though many Germans can speak English perfectly well, they have trouble pronouncing many words.
In this video, ten Germans try their best to pronounce the name of the fluffy tailed rodent.
“To be fair, most native English speakers can’t say the German word for “squirrel” (eichhörnchen) either.”
