Stalked By A Fox, A Squirrel Knocks On A Window For Help.

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.
