WATCH: Squirrel steals camera, makes own action video

/ 02:16 PM August 10, 2016

A park squirrel apparently found a GoPro camera on the ground interesting enough to pick up and spirit away. This resulted in a dizzying POV romp through a tree that would make some freerunners envious.


The GoPro belonged to YouTuber Viva Frei, who left the the device on the ground while recording. It would normally be very difficult to strap a camera on a small critter, especially one as rambunctious as a squirrel, and get good footage. It’s definitely a lot easier to have the critter pick up the camera willingly, The Next Web said.

There was another video posted back in 2014 of another squirrel picking up a GoPro. Unfortunately it did not have the same camera handling skills as the one that had Viva Frei’s GoPro.  Alfred Bayle
