A new video has captured the incredible scene of a squirrel inspecting a GoPro camera and becoming so intrigued by it that he carries it up his tree where he completes the inspection, decides that he doesn’t like the gadget after all and throws it back down to its anxious owner.
Montreal resident David Freiheit, who uploaded the video, wanted to see if the inquisitive rodent would run off while the camera was recording, so he attached a piece of bread to a GoPro. But he got more than he bargained for when the squirrel took the whole thing and ran off.
The funny thing is that you can see the guy running after the squirrel, as if he could catch it. Once in the safety of his tree, the squirrel took a few sniffs of the camera and nudged it a couple of times, presumably evaluating its culinary qualities.
Amazingly, while the inspection was under way, the squirrel inadvertently filmed the hapless Mr. Freiheit waiting quietly under the tree, in the evident hope that his camera will be returned.
And that is exactly what happened after the squirrel decided the GoPro wasn’t edible after all. He let it drop to the ground and back into the hands of its rightful owner.
The footage ends with a shot of the concerned Mr. Freiheit inspecting the damage, but there was none… This is hilarious.
