The Buzz

Squirrel invades home, and complete pandemonium breaks out




Squirrels can be some incredibly adorable creatures when they're outside in their own element.

But when they invade your personal space, the reaction can be a little different. 

via GIPHY

That's exactly the reaction one family had when a furry creature made its way into their home.

Luckily for us, they did the first thing most of us would do, which is to start taking video. 

And then scream.

We're talking blood-curdling screams.

Of all the living creatures in the house, the dog seems to be the only one who kept its composure through the mayhem.

 

Incredibly, squirrels invading homes is more common than you may think. And we're not just talking about them getting into an attic. For example, there was the time a squirrel took advantage of a homeowner's five-week vacation and completely trashed the place

Or how about the time this squirrel came down the chimney and ran seemingly everywhere in the room, except for the place where the homeowners wanted him to.

So what do you do if a squirrel makes it into your house? Don't be like the guy above and feebly toss a tray at it. 

A job like that is best left to a wildlife professional.
