NEW YORK, May 27 (UPI) -- A man filming a squirrel while taking a stroll in New York inadvertently recreated a Jurassic Park scene when a second squirrel attacked while he was distracted.

David Markovich posted a video to YouTube showing the footage he filmed when a squirrel let him get close in a New York City park.

"Squirrels here," Markovich says in the video. "Look at this guy."

Markovich marvels at the unusually close-up shot he is able to get of the apparently fearless squirrel.

"Oh my God, so close," Markovich says as he turns the camera.

A second squirrel staring at Markovich from atop a fence mere feet away then lunges at Markovich and appears to make contact with the camera, bringing an abrupt end to the video.

Clever squirrel.
