In a bizarre incident, a squirrel was arrested by police in Germany on Thursday after a woman complained that it was following her around.

Police received an unusual emergency call from a young woman in Bottrop in North Rhine-Westphalia (NRW), complaining that while walking down the street in the west German city, she found herself being chased by the squirrel.

Unable to shake the animal off, she eventually called the police for help and an officer was quick to come to her aid. After capturing the rodent, officers brought it back to the station, where it was discovered that the animal displayed symptoms of exhaustion.

The squirrel had been arrested and taken into custody, police said in a press release. Police say the squirrel will be transferred to a rescue centre once it has recovered its strength.
