A burglar in Idaho had to turn tail and run after he broke into a house and got attacked by his victim's pet squirrel.
The deputy asked the owner, AdamPearl, if Joey the squirrel was friendly, and was told he was, but "you never know, since he's a squirrel." She took note, then left to file her report, but came back a few hours later with most of the items that had been stolen from Pearl's place, along with a confession from a suspect she'd hauled in. The cop said she asked, 'Did you get that from the squirrel?' and he says 'Yeah, damn thing kept attacking me and wouldn't stop until I left.'"
