I've seen some tense standoffs before on live TV but nothing got my blood pumping like this one.

Things escalated quickly from the beginning It starts off with the squirrel trapped at the top of the fence, running back and forth in a complete panic. The two dogs at the bottom are determined to have squirrel for lunch. Trying their hardest to leap up and grab the squirrel. The video ends with the squirrel seeing his chance to escape and the cameraman cutting off the film.

I talked to Freddy, the guy who posted the video to Twitter and he told me the good news. The squirrel was able to outrun the dogs by running up a light pole and then jumped on a tree limb. Now, the squirrel gets to live another glorious day and is free to go get his nut.
