Police get big welcome from cookie-stealing squirrel

Posted: Updated:

An overexcited squirrel gave police in Brockport, New York, quite a welcome.

They responded Friday to a call about a squirrel that had broken into a home — and was reportedly eating cookies in the kitchen.

They arrived with their body cameras on, and those cameras caught the moment the squirrel launched itself at the officers.

Luckily, no one was injured — and neither was the squirrel, which was eventually captured and released outside.
