A man called the German police after being chased by a baby squirrel on Thursday, as The Guardian reported.

Officers said the man, whose name has not been released, was still being chased by the animal when police arrived on the scene.

Police suspected the baby had been separated from its mother and, instead, was looking to the man for support.

“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, told the Guardian.

But the chase ended suddenly when the animal, who had apparently grown tired, fell asleep.

Krenz said she didn’t blame the man for calling for help, though.

“It can be pretty scary,” she said. “The man didn’t know what to do and so he called the police. He was certainly feeling a bit threatened.”

Police took the squirrel to an animal shelter, where it is reportedly doing well. Krenz said the shelter was caring for two other baby squirrels brought in for similar reasons — although this was the only case where police had been brought in for protection.

Sometimes, it seems, we all get caught up in the chase.
