Jan. 21 (UPI) -- A Toronto woman captured video when she looked into her backyard and was confronted with a bizarre sight: a squirrel holding a knife.
Andrea Diamond, who lives in the Rosedale area of Toronto, said squirrels are a common sight in her back yard, but Wednesday morning she spotted a squirrel that had picked up a paring knife she had left near a tent outside her home.
"So apparently knife wielding squirrels are a thing now," Diamond tweeted along with footage of the squirrel.
She said the rodent gnawed on the knife handle for a while before abandoning the tool. She said the animal returned a short time later to chew on the knife a little longer.
Diamond said the squirrel did not appear to have injured itself with the sharp object.
