A baby squirrel in the south-western city of Karlsruhe has been accused of terrorizing an adult human. Police officers arrived on Thursday and took the baby squirrel into custody – that is after is fell soundly asleep wrapping itself up into an adorable little ball.
According to the Facebook page of the Polizei Karlsruhe, [Polizei Police Department], the little rodent has become their new mascot and has been named Karl-Friedrich.
“Karl-Friedrich” was spent in police care at the station. There, they took care of accommodation for the little squirrel, which apparently was looking for a new home. The animal is now in a #shelter and is well cared for.
We wish the little one all the best!”
And so, this tiny furry offender chased after a human most likely searching for food or help. No one knows where Karl-Friedrich’s mother could have been, but baby squirrels are known to search out someone to be a substitute mom. Translated, the situation developed as followed as a 911 call came in asking for help:
” help, I’m being followed by a #squirrel!” possibly with these words, on Thursday, around 8:00 am, a man at the karlsruhe emergency. The officials didn’t hesitate long and sent a patrol to the #erzberger road to investigate.
In fact, the police met the man who was persecuted by the stubborn little creature. While officials of the karlsruhe-marketplace police station made a picture of the situation, the squirrel apparently cared for lots of fun and #enthusiasm. This shows an excerpt from the protocol: ” squirrel becomes new mascot, was baptized on the name: Karl-Friedrich.” followed by the message: ” the squirrel fell asleep due to terror.”
Little Karl is currently at a wild animal rescue center and is reported to be doing fine.
Beware the baby squirrels. There have been reports that certain squirrels can be aggressive. Leave wildlife alone.
