Oct. 17 (UPI) -- A North Carolina police department shared video of two officers having a difficult time capturing a squirrel with an injured leg.
The Hillsborough Police Department said Lead Rescuer Sgt. Purvis and Assistant Rescuer Officer Dimitri responded Tuesday to a report of an injured animal at the Hampton Pointe Shopping Center.
A video from the incident shows the two officers having surprising difficulty capturing the squirrel, which had an injured leg, in a box.
The department, which quipped the incident was "serious police business," said the squirrel was taken to the Our Wild Neighbors sanctuary for rehab.
