The Persic family from Pennsylvania wondered why their cat isn't working. When they popped the hood, they found some gifts from a local and very energetic squirrel. Story via: The Dodo
Holly Persic, a resident of Pennsylvania, was on her way to work when her car started to make odd and funny noises from the engine.
When she also noticed a burning smell, she knew something was wrong with the car. So, she pulled over to the side of the road and gave her husband Chris a call. He suggested she open the hood, which she did. But she couldn't believe what she saw underneath.
The inside of the hood was filled to the brim with hundreds of walnuts, all packed in tightly with grass.
A very diligent squirrel had apparently decided the Persics' car was the perfect place for his winter stash.
But here's the crazy part: the squirrel did all that work in just a few days.
The Persics had their car parked outside and undisturbed for only a matter of days. That means the squirrel managed to pack away several hundred walnuts in an amazingly short amount of time.
The Persics took the car into a shop to make sure everything was in order.
There, they had to tell the whole story to the mechanics, who were just as amazed as they'd been. Mike Tevis of Tevis Auto Service told the Dodo it was unlike anything he'd experienced before.
"Craziest thing we have ever seen!" he said. "They were lucky that all that dried grass didn't catch fire. There was not much damage done to the vehicle but it could have been a lot worse." Thankfully, after a few hours of cleaning, the car was back in tip-top shape.
