Stranded squirrel suckers six firefighters into elaborate rescue op1/8/2013
Oh, that we all could have the magnetism of this special little rodent. After somehow getting itself stranded on a patch of waterlogged reeds on Sunday, a squirrel in Watford, England, managed to attract such sympathy that someone called the fire department — which sent three fire engines and six firefighters to its aid. Apparently unaware that squirrels actually know a primitive doggy paddle, the crew launched an elaborate rescue mission, setting up two ladders and jumping in the water to coax the critter to shore. Though some residents found the incident cute, others complained it was a waste of public services. We're thinking they just needed to bring in that ninja squirrel. [Source]
