This Squirrel Stole a GoPro and Made a Viral Video in the Treetops

Screengrab via YouTube

If you have ever wondered what it was like to live in the trees, you can now get a glimpse of animal life thanks to one squirrel who recently stole a GoPro camera.

Lucky for us, the critter decided to scoop up the camera and carry it around while it went about its day, and the squirrel’s camera skills actually aren’t half bad. It somehow it managed to pick up the camera with the lens facing forward, which is pretty impressive. The tech-savvy rodent first scurried up a tree and then began to dart around different branches.

The point of view gives watchers a view of the treetops on a bright, sunny day. At some points you can even see the little animal’s hands and mouth gripping the camera.

See for yourself in the video below.

Pretty crazy, huh? The squirrel gets moving pretty fast at some points in the video. Then, it seems the squirrel felt bad because it placed the camera back down on the ground afterwards.

So, the moral of this video is: never turn off your GoPro. You never know just who – or what – might steal it. The video has since gone viral, garnering over 2 million views in less than a month.
