  • The squirrel fell asleep after the chase

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.

Apple spokesperson Tom Neumayr confirmed that Field had returned to the company but did not reveal what project he was working on. That fits with what Apple does: produces all its own hardware and sells them directly to consumers.

According to The Guardian, the baby squirrel had probably been separated from its mother and was therefore pursuing the man. She told the publication that the experience can be "pretty scary". "He was certainly feeling a bit threatened". But first they named it Karl-Friedrich and declared it their mascot, according to a police statement.

"The squirrel has fallen asleep because of fright", they added.

The situation eventually resolved itself when the baby squirrel fell asleep.

'The animal is now in [an animal rescue centre] and is well looked after.

Krenz said the rescue centre was looking after two other abandoned baby squirrels brought in on the same day for similar reasons, though theirs was the only case in which police have had to intervene.
