You'll feel bad for laughing at this video of a squirrel with a cup stuck on its head

The Wildlife Response team in Enfield, Connecticut were called to an unusual emergency recently - a squirrel had gotten its head trapped in what looked like a small carton.

In a video that has been watched more than 200,000 times, the squirrel can be seen blindly hopping all over the place. It proved to be a little difficult to catch - which is amusing to watch but the poor thing was very panicked.

But once it was wrangled, all they then had to do was pop the cup off and the squirrel scampered off, none the worse for wear.

And with a great story to tell its friends.

Our only question… Did the situation really call for a team of six?
