Police said a young woman called authorities Wednesday morning to report she was being stalked by a tenacious squirrel that resisted all of her attempts to evade it.

An officer brought the squirrel back to the police station, where it was determined to be showing signs of exhaustion.

Bottrop: Eichhörnchen nach Verfolgung in Gewahrsam genommen Ein sehr ungewöhnlicher Notruf erreichte heute Morgen die Polizei in Bottrop. Ein Eichhörnchen verfolgte eine junge Frau an der Eichenstraße.Die Beamten stellten fest: das stimmt! Sie nahmen den Verfolger in Gewahrsam und brachten ihn zur Polizeiwache. Dort zeigte das Eichhörnchen erste Erschöpfungserscheinungen, denen die Beamten mit Apfelstücken und Honigtee entgegenwirkten. Frisch gestärkt soll es dann einer Auffangstation übergeben werden.----------------------#Polizei#Recklinghausen
