This is the one-of-a-kind moment a squirrel seems to knock on a window to ask for help while it is being stalked by a fox.
Mark Gardner caught the hilarious encounter on camera in his garden and it quickly went viral when he shared it online. The 48-year-old captioned the image “If you could let me in… that’d be great” and said:
I’m forever taking photos out of my window of the animals and the fox has been coming in the garden for years. The squirrel has been coming around a lot recently too and he knows he will get food that I leave out for them. I call him Corby.
This picture appears to capture the moment a squirrel had to knock on a window to ask for help when it was stalked by a fox.
Gardner said he was often taking photos out of his window of animals and the fox has been coming in the garden for years.
The squirrel has often been seen in the garden recently and “knows he will get food that I leave out”, the photographer said.
Gardner captioned his original image with the phrase “if you could let me in… that’d be great” and it was shared 21,000 times.
In the photos taken by Gardner the squirrel was “actually coming to tap on the window for nuts as he is very cheeky”.
The fox called Forest was “skulking around on the lawn watching him intently it looked just like he was asking for help from us”.
Gardner said that after his original image went viral, it gave him “a massive opportunity to see what people think of it”.
Gardner said he finds wildlife “amazing” in his back garden because “they are just trying to survive in an urban jungle”.
The garden has proved a haven for wildlife and three foxes including Forest have been returning there for a number of years.
Gardner said animals “do what they need to do to survive and they slow things down”.
