Hooray for animal videos - they never fail to amuse.

Enfield Emergency Medical Services came to the aid of a helpless squirrel over the weekend.

The rodent had managed to get what looks like a plastic cup stuck on its head.

The little fella turned out to be quite feisty and it took the EMS team a while to rescue the critter.

This incident may have happened in Connecticut but I can definitely imagine the gardaí getting stuck in a similarly nutty situation.
