A mother squirrel comes to the rescue of her baby after it fell off the tree as a dog starts to investigate it. After the whirlwind attack the mother
squirrel springs free of the dog and rushes her baby back up into safety.
Using its sharp teeth and claws, the squirrel tore into its canine opponent and distracted it so the baby could escape to freedom. The surprise
assault gives the baby squirrel just enough time to climb back up the nearby tree before its mother is thrown clear and escapes from the dog.
The frustrated dog is left sitting forlornly at the base of the tree as its prey escapes into the upper branches.
