EDMOND, OK (CNN) - An Oklahoma woman got the fright of her life in, of all places, her own bathroom.
The frantic woman called 911 when she found a squirrel snuck into her home and went for a swim in her toilet.
Officer Derek Kennedy of the Edmond Police Department was the first to respond.
"As soon as I saw the squirrel, I knew I needed backup immediately," he joked.
Kennedy and his partner spent the next several minutes trying to corral the little guy.
"We wrangled up some snake tongs, a small dog kennel, and then we shut the door and the squirrel jumped out of the toilet," he said. "After about five minutes of chasing him, and him chasing us, we finally caught him."
The officers then released him in a nearby park.
"He was one cold, wet squirrel, but happy to be free," he said.
Police speculate the squirrel got inside by crawling through a sewer drain.
Animal control experts recommend covering any exposed vents or pipes leading inside your home with a sturdy mesh covering to keep stray animals from crawling inside.
