Squirrel rescued from toilet by Goose
metro.co.uk ^ | March 28, 2011 | Simon Garne

British businessman Duncan Goose has told of his surprise at finding a squirrel peering up at him from his toilet.

Mr Goose, 42, was in Malawi to check on aid projects backed by his company's One projects when he rescued the forlorn animal.

He was preparing for bed in his hotel room when he discovered the struggling squirrel.

He said: 'I was concerned it was going to jump out and bite me, so I put the lid back down and left it for a minute as I wasn't sure what to do.'

When he returned shortly after to take a second look he realised it was a squirrel and set about rescuing the poor critter.

His method was putting a hand towel down the toilet which allowed the squirrel to climb up.

Once out he placed it in a laundry basket, took it outside and released it.

Sounds like a cat-crime to me. Round up the suspects.

That water looks dirty. I hope it’s from the squirrel taking a bath!

He stuck his hand in the toilet?

Bad idea. I understand squirrels like nuts. And I’m guessing there were some nuts in the bathroom. Just show them to the squirrel - he climbs out of the toilet - problem solved.

Heh.

The lead-in paragraph on the main page of FR ended exactly like this:

He said: 'I was concerned it was going to jump out and bite me, so I put the lid back down and left it for a minute as I wasn't sure what to do.'

When he returned shortly after to take a...

I was thinking the story was about to get way interesting.

This is just a rehash of an old Bullwinkle episode, except that was MOOSE and squirrel. And yeah, OK, obviously this squirrel couldn’t fly, cuz he wouldn’t have been stuck in the toilet. But it’s racist anyway because they used the word “Malawi”.

I would think the squirrel was up on the roof and fell down (or crawled down)the sewer vent.

Very late in my life, not too long ago, I heard, for the first time, the term “tree rats” applied to squirrels by someone. The term has some truth to it and it surprised me that I had never heard it before, because it sort of makes sense.

He should have flushed. They are nothing but a glorified Rat. And when they get into your home then they can do unspeakable damage. They chew everything. Wires, wood, insulation. I used to think they were cute, but not anymore. Not after having to deal with the damage they do. They are also extremely Bold. If you chase them away then they are back in an hour.
