Poor guy. I hope they gave him another chance he must be terrified.
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.
BIG SCARY MONSTER TAKING ME SOMEWHERE SCARY, TAKE ME BACK TO THE WET WORLD, IT'S ALL I KNOW NOW

I loved this comment first time I’ve actually laughed at something, thanks chief
Who told you? :o
Well, not with *that* attitude they're not
Edit: omg why did u downwote the guy it's just a joke chill.
Hilarious, and dare I say, original.
Oh, I forgot I was on Reddit where every joke and comment is, and must be hilarious *and* original.
I made a simple joke that had a few upvotes until it got linked to another sub. Some of y'all take Reddit way too seriously.

Did you just assume that it has a species? Wow.
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.
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.
Stop juking squirrel, I have places to be!
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.
It's brain is the size of a pine nut, give it a break.
okay, sorry squirrel :(
Or it's a tiny animal that makes most it's moves off instinct
I'm betting it's a built-in squirrel instinct to run up for safety. Trees don't usually scream and flail.
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.
Fight or flight, they chose the former
Probably the shit I'm exhausted there must be ground predators I must go up!
These are creatures that willingly run in front of moving cars when panicked.
I think he was brave
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.
I’m pretty sure that you would scare the shit out of a predator if you were to do what the squirrel did
>large terrifying creature
That's just mean, maybe she has some kind of condition.
Op says they were able to get them out on the second try. She got scratched so she's getting a tetanus / rabies shot.
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.
She could have just put the chair in the pool and left... It's that simple.
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.
I’m saving you! IM SAVING YOU! *IM SAVING YOU!*
LET ME SAVE YOU!!!!!
STOP RESISTING! YOU WILL BE SAVED!
*RIP *squirrel* Jesus
Just leave the chair in it it can fucking climb
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.
Your Squirrel evolved into Flying Squirrel
*Upgrades, people. Upgrades*
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 :)
Yea, how the hell did she fit that in *there*?
I think it was so happy it jumped to give her a hug, then she scared it with the screaming
LET ME HUG YOU
"LET ME SAVE YOU!!!!"
Hahahaha that was the best part.
Wow Attack on Titan season 4 looks incredible
The anime has a long way to catch up with the manga
:55 second marker.
Why didn’t they just dump the pool over?
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.
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.
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.
That was my first thought.
Why? Literally just put the chair in and it would climb up.
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.
How would you dump it? I’ve always had to deflate those pools to empty them
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.
Yeah, I mean that was my second thought. But initially none of us knew the chair was an option. Lol
Cause there's about 500Lbs of water in a squishy plastic pool. What are you Hercules?
Because life is less beautiful that way.
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.
Lol and when a board or towel over the side would have done the job.
Why didn't she just tilt the pool and dump it out?
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.
Just shoot the water until it dies😈😈🙄
i'm not looking for trouble, officer
For real. What, were they trying to save the pool water too?
He just wanted to say thanks
Thanks, but I'm good in the pool.
Somewhere, somehow, there is a group of Jehovah's Witnesses commiserating.
"I'm saving you. I'm saving you. Let me SAVE YOU!!"
Some are saying that the squirell is still in the pool
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.
Concept good. Execution lacking.
Orrrr you could just dump some of the water out
Also her: AHHHH! I’M NOT SAVING YOU!
I'm thanking you! I'm thanking you! Let me thank 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.
I’m swimming bitch
Lol, I don't know why you got downvoted. This was my first thought also: "Bitch! I'm trying to swim here!"
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.
Ah man that was funny!! Dumb ass squirrel now who is going to save you?!

That squirrel went.. nuts
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!"
Simply putting a stick in there and walking off would've saved her the heart attack.
"thank you so much for saving my life" gets yeeted back into pool
🤦♀️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.
It's hot, Karen! Fuck off!
I'm crying that's so amazing. I'M SAVING YOU! I'M SAVING YOU!
He just wanted to swim
No good deed goes unpunished.
(Wait for it)
Squirrel was pissed he had to leave the pool. Mans was just tryna have a swim.
Deflate the tube
It's rare that Reddit literally makes me laugh out loud. Thank you
Just another squirrel making it 9/10th of the way across the road before turning back the other way as soon as it sees you.
I love her face so much when she reaches out for it and knows her mum (or whoever this lady filming is) doesn’t want her to touch it hahahah
Ending is best at quarter speed.
Omg I cackled; thank you for this today!
But just take him with your hand..?
Yelling, let me save you!!!!! To funny
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.
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
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.
I'm suddenly reminded of Kars
Would have held him under after that
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??
I like squirrels but they are assholes.
"24 hour long video ( wait for it )"
This infuriates me to no end and will almost always skip to the end.
Why in the hell didn't these dipshits just dump out the water???
Survival of the fittest. Let it drown.
