  • Pittsburgh couple finds hundreds of walnuts burrowed under auto hood

Several walnuts are shown hidden under the hood of Holly Persic's SUV on October 7, 2019.

A Pennsylvania couple made a baffling discovery after smelling what they thought was something burning from the hood of their auto.

Once they popped the hood, they couldn't believe their eyes.

"They were everywhere, under the battery, near the radiator fan", Chris Persic said. She had it inspected recently, and the walnuts only started to fall a couple of weeks ago, so this happened pretty quickly.

"There's definitely an angry squirrel wife right now wondering where all the nuts went", Chris joked.

"We had a tree guy here... and I made a comment, 'For how many walnuts there are up in that tree, it's incredible you don't see them all over the ground, '" Chris Persic said.

The Persics say there were more than 200 walnuts stuffed under the car's hood.

The couple discovered an engine full of grass and walnuts, neatly packed. The couple took the auto to a mechanic, who found half a trashcan's worth of walnuts under the engine.

"My truck may have had a squirrel chew through/pull out a fuel injector hose, and Holly's looked like they were storing up for the next three winters", Chris Persic wrote in a post on Facebook.

"Was absolutely nuts.no pun intended", Mr Persic said in his Facebook post.

Although there was no damage to the vehicle, Mr Persic warned others to check under their bonnets.

If it weren't for the rain, Chris Persic said he thinks this would have been less of a amusing story.
