OTTAWA, July 20 (UPI) -- An Ottawa man captured video of a squirrel with big dreams carrying a towel twice its own size to its nest atop a tree.

The video, shared on YouTube by user isOceans, features a squirrel on the streets of Ottawa curiously approaching a towel left on the concrete stoop of a home.


The rodent carefully grips the towel in its mouth and leaps atop a trash can to begin its escape with the loot.

The squirrel is able to carefully climb a tree with the large towel dangling from its mouth and disappears among the branches, which the uploader said conceals the animal's nest.
