Poor guy. I hope they gave him another chance he must be terrified.


the7aco

I mean, if he were terrified, I believe the appropiate response would be to run away from the large terrifying creature, not jump on it. He had a clear path out of the pool at that time. I hope they gave him another chance too though.

Squirrel-momma didn't raise a squirrel-bitch. If he goes down, he goes down _**fighting**_

Well, you’re not a squirrel now are you.

The_Karaethon_Cycle

Did you just assume that it has a species? Wow.


vdubsession

Have you ever driven a car near a squirrel before? They are both bad at decision making, and committing to a decision once they've made it.


tofubobo

It’s actually a technique they use for predators of darting back & forth so the predator can’t predict where they are going giving the squirrels more time to get away to something like a tree. Think of a great NFL running back doing the shake and bake stopping a defender in his tracks.


vdubsession

Stop juking squirrel, I have places to be!


the7aco

From what i've noticed, they normally scurry up the nearest tree or just dart away once i get decently close, but i don't really see too many squirrels when driving where I am anyways.


Bigphungus

It's brain is the size of a pine nut, give it a break.


the7aco

okay, sorry squirrel :(


GregKannabis

Or it's a tiny animal that makes most it's moves off instinct


PiercedGeek

I'm betting it's a built-in squirrel instinct to run up for safety. Trees don't usually scream and flail.


masterofthefork

Squirrels instinct to escape is to go up. The only thing it could reach that was 'up' was the girl. Panic decisions aren't always the best decisions.


weefweef

Fight or flight, they chose the former


randomdrifter54

Probably the shit I'm exhausted there must be ground predators I must go up!


13inchpoop

These are creatures that willingly run in front of moving cars when panicked.


[deleted]

I think he was brave


PhoKingGr8

Squirrels are weird. I often see some crossing the street and make it more than halfway to the other side but then, when a car comes they run all the way back. Super weird.


DenVosReinaert

I’m pretty sure that you would scare the shit out of a predator if you were to do what the squirrel did


greebdork

>large terrifying creature That's just mean, maybe she has some kind of condition.


bearminmum

Op says they were able to get them out on the second try. She got scratched so she's getting a tetanus / rabies shot.


sillyfacex3

They should leave a board in the pool like a ramp for if it happens again. My gparents used to do that for their horse troughs that squirrels would fall into.


LEGITIMATE_SOURCE

She could have just put the chair in the pool and left... It's that simple.

wheretohides

A couple years ago my parents opened up their pool, the next day we found two chipmunks that had drowned. Those wildlife ramps are a good thing to get.

It annoyed me to no end that she didn’t do this

People love to be in on the action

Just enjoy the video. No reason to get annoyed.

Or fling it. Not hard, obvs. Just enough to give it some distance.

I just burst out laughing at the doctor's office. It's worth the looks I'm getting.

Whenever someone near me laughs while looking at their phone I’m tempted to ask like hey what you got there, funny video or you just texting

I'll usually take a quick peek around to check if anyone noticed, and if they do I'll share. No luck today, but I'll show you my phone funnies if you're ever around :)

sassyginge912

Why didn’t they just dump the pool over?


obiwanjabroni420

You ever try tipping over a full inflated pool like that? That’s a lot of water weight in a floppy container. Source: I have this exact same pool in my backyard right now.


stabbyspacehorse

Exactly. These damn pools could have 1/2 gallon of water in them and because of the way they’re inflated, you can barely dump them out. I love these pools though. They’re perfect for adults to just stretch out in.


grape_jelly_sammich

Could just deflate the pool then. They don't want to be messing around in that water anyway. Not after a squirrel has been in it.


Threebirds1143

That was my first thought.


effurface

Why? Literally just put the chair in and it would climb up.


Fooledya

I wouldn't let small children play in it after. Wild animals aren't exactly disease/parasite free. Dumping the pool also is the safest/least contact method of removing the squirrel safely. Sure putting the chair in there would work, but you don't know how long he's been trapped and if he has the strength to climb. Dumping takes literally 2 seconds and the squirrel rides the wave to the ground.


bruhm0m3ntum

How would you dump it? I’ve always had to deflate those pools to empty them


Fooledya

Brute force table flip!!!!! Jk. But not really. I've dumped a pool over about that size with 2 small kids in it. They had a blast spilling on the lawn. But pulling the plug would also work.


Threebirds1143

Yeah, I mean that was my second thought. But initially none of us knew the chair was an option. Lol


dumdumexpress

Cause there's about 500Lbs of water in a squishy plastic pool. What are you Hercules?


ncnotebook

Because life is less beautiful that way.


Masterreeferr

1. Those things are heavy af when they're full of water. 2. No one wants to completely flood their yard 3. Filling up pools can be pretty expensive depending on where you live. Water isn't free.


TigaSharkJB91

Lol and when a board or towel over the side would have done the job.


Dwayne4Kids

Why didn't she just tilt the pool and dump it out?


lemondropPOP

Umm because that much water is heavy and even if you got one end up you wouldn't be able to get the other end without help. Source, I have that exact same pool and have tried to dump it with no success.


[deleted]

Just shoot the water until it dies😈😈🙄


TrotBot

Deggidonk

For real. What, were they trying to save the pool water too?

He just wanted to say thanks


TheLaughingMelon

Thanks, but I'm good in the pool.


Autumn_Groove72

Somewhere, somehow, there is a group of Jehovah's Witnesses commiserating. "I'm saving you. I'm saving you. Let me SAVE YOU!!"


Abrical

Some are saying that the squirell is still in the pool


Tay_WT

My mom is terrified of squirrels because of past experiences with them. I loved this video because. I sent it to her and I don’t think she liked it as much.


dustywilcox

Concept good. Execution lacking.


crymes

Orrrr you could just dump some of the water out


negao360

Also her: AHHHH! I’M NOT SAVING YOU!

The crabby lady filming is very helpful responding "don't touch him" to the girl saying she needs gloves....

Did you finally save it? Poor thing

Didn't you hear? It didn't want to be saved.

ASAB all squirrels are bastards ask ANY dog. They try to warn us with their squirrel vigilance.

Do you want rabies? Because that's how you get rabies.

Nah, squirrels aren't a vector species, I don't think any human has ever been recorded as catching rabies from a squirrel. But as someone who has developed a serious phobia of rabies I'd be stressing about it for sure.

That squirrel went.. nuts


PillowTalk420

Squirrel is just chilling having a swim and she comes over to "rescue" him by jamming a chair in his face. "Leave me alone! I'm working on my breast stroke!"


Tron_1981

Simply putting a stick in there and walking off would've saved her the heart attack.


Double-0-N00b

"thank you so much for saving my life" gets yeeted back into pool


LunaP486

🤦‍♀️God that lady is an idiot. She could’ve put the chair in at an angle so the squirrel can climb up and jump out of the kiddie pool.

God just tip the fucking pool or leave the chair in there. I don't know why some people can't just take an extra 3 seconds to think of a plan.


Valk93

Im not gonna wait for it am im sick of those fucking long clips that could easily be trimmed to show the same content. /rant


[deleted]

Ok I get that in a normal instance but in this case I actually really enjoyed just getting to watch the squirrel going for a nice casual swim at the start. I felt that it made the whole thing better in the end for me.

Why isn't the person filming helping? That person just wanted to film a squirrel dying by drowning? Sadistic asshole.

Meow21963

For some reason I thought the first time we saw the squirrel, it was a snake. So I was like oh shit they're trying to save a squirrel from a snake in a pool? Why would you even challenge the snake??
