A man resorted to calling the emergency services after being chased by a 'stubborn' baby squirrel in Germany.

Police in the city of Karlsruhe shared photos of the adorable creature, who they say startled a man by following him on Thursday morning.

The man was allegedly so distressed that he resorted to calling the police.

The chase proved exhausting for the young animal, who soon fell asleep.

Officers took the little creature into 'custody' where they arranged temporary accommodation and care for the animal, who they have re-named Karl-Friedrich.

Police spokeswoman Christina Krenz said: "The squirrel evidently provided a lot of fun and enthusiasm...

"The squirrel has become a new mascot."

He is now in the care of a rescue center and they are looking for  anew home for Karl-Friedrich.
