Crazy squirrel stalks selfie woman

Hagaman Musson says: "So I was waiting for my son to come home from school and I see this woman trying to get a close up of the squirrel trying to get a selfie with it. Next thing I know he's chasing her down the street and she's rejecting the close up. Now she's in front of our house and the squirrel comes into view still chasing her. So now she's filming him screaming for him to get away. "

  1. That looks like one of the evangelical ones. I like to keep my distance, too, as they can get pretty darned preachy sometimes.

  2. My wife was actually approached by a baby squirrel last night while on a walk after work. It came towards her and started climbing her pant leg. She took it off and put it in a tree, but it ran down the tree and back up her leg!

    Looking around, she saw a dead squirrel in the road, probably this one's mother. She decided to bring it home, and we set up a little bed for it in an old cat crate, and this morning brought it to an animal rescuer who lives right down the road from us.

    A web page I found said that young squirrels (4 to 6 weeks) will seek out a human if they've been abandoned. They are just looking for warmth and care. We put ours in a couple wool hats and he burrowed right in and made these soft grunting noises, and would look right at us when we talked to him. Cutest thing I've seen in a long time.

    Could be that the squirrel in this video was an abandoned baby too and just looking for a surrogate mommy.

  3. Or if they're rabid.
