Squirrel Stumbles on Hawk’s Nest, Makes Cinematic Getaway Worthy of Spielberg

This squirrel in New Jersey just learned a hard lesson that almost cost it its life, but what an escape it made!

Despite what you’ve learned hawks and squirrels get along just fine- as long as the squirrels understand that hawks find them delicious.

Even at that, sometimes a neighborly squirrel just wants to drop in and say hello. The only problem is that maybe the hawk family was having issues that day because as fast as this tree-rat showed up, he headed for the hills.

Or in this case orbit.

Thanks to the Wild Jersey City Facebook page for sharing this unique and very entertaining video!

Apparently this squirrel simply found itself in the wrong place at the wrong time and was lucky to get out alive. Amazing as it is, it’s made even more special by the fact that a video camera was rolling.

Keep those phones and cameras ready because you never know what may pop out of a tree, jump out of the water, or fly over your head and if you get some good film of it you might just find yourself right here!
