Squirrels have been prey for other animals for a long time. I’ve seen both cats and falcons grab them. The cat one was a little unsettling because my wife and I were walking with our son in his stroller when it happened. We had to be like, “Oh, look over there son… the sky is SO blue” while we’re turning the stroller away and seeing the spectacle for ourselves. Sometimes though, the squirrel gets the upper hand. Like in this video.
We see Mela, a black dog that seems to be in the pointer family. She sees a squirrel on a tree and is determined to get it. The squirrel, on the other hand, seems to just want to tease Mela and does so by easily scampering around the tree while MC Hammer’s “U Can’t Touch This” play on his headphones. Well, that’s what would happen if squirrels could wear headphones. Mela has NO shot of getting this little fella, but he’s game to try.
This video reminds me of an old Dave Barry column that I read. It featured his large, not-so-bright dog named Earnest, who loved to chase squirrels around a tree. The problem is that the squirrel would move after a bit and this huge dog would run headfirst into the tree at a high rate of speed. Didn’t seem to bother him, though. I still laugh until I start snorting when I read the column and I am incapable of reading it aloud to anyone without turning red from laughing.
If there’s ever any doubt that we are all actually living in the Matrix, this video is proof. That squirrel was straight up defying the laws of nature like Neo. It wouldn’t have surprised me to see him suddenly jump from the tree and hang suspended in mid-air while the camera rotated around him. Now, if that squirrel was Neo… who was Mela? Agent Smith? The next time that pooch goes out, he needs to wear sunglasses and an earpiece…
That squirrel was something else, huh? Have you seen anything like that? Tell us all about it in the comments section.
