Police in the German city of Karlsruhe have rushed to help a man being followed by a baby squirrel after he made an emergency call, saying the little creature would not let him go.

Police in Karlsruhe said the unnamed man called them in desperation after he was unable to shake off the small rodent.

And not just any squirrel.

Officers received a call for help and arrived to see the animal still chasing the caller in Karlsruhe, Germany.

The drama ended when the baby squirrel, presumably exhausted from all the excitement, fell asleep abruptly.

A police spokeswoman said squirrels that have lost their mothers often focus on a person as a replacement.
