When you think of squirrels, chances are you imagine a cute woodland creature whose one and only mission in life is to seek out and bury acorns. Now while that may be true for most squirrels, it appears some squirrels have other ideas about how to live their lives and it includes attacking a law enforcement officer. 

In the last few weeks, animals have been caught doing all manner of things on camera phones and webcams all over the world. From a cat discovering his owner's not so secretive pet cam to an owl inspecting a weather cam in Montana to a mischievous magpie disrupting a postman’s round by stealing a letter, it’s needless to say animals unknowingly provide us with a lot of entertainment.
