A man from New Brunswick, Canada noticed some unusual activity in the river.

According to news agency United Press International, he ended up rescuing a red squirrel.

Matt Myers saw a group of bass splashing at the surface of the water while fishing.

“I looked to the side and I thought ‘What is that in the middle of this spawning activity?'” the man said.

He initially thought the bass attacked a stick, but he then realized something else.

“[I]t’s this poor little red squirrel in the middle of all this spawning activity,” Myers said.

Meanwhile, police officers in Pennsylvania rescued a squirrel found trapped inside a metal pole.

According to various news reports online, someone called them to respond to the incident.

Based on the situation, the squirrel apparently fell into the open top of the metal pole.

The Lititz Borough Police Department took to social media platform Facebook to share a footage of the rescue operation.

In the video, officers use a small ladder to get above the pole and reach in with a smaller pole to free the squirrel.

The animal then climbs the offered escape route and darts up the wooden utility pole with such speed.
