Family's car vandalized by squirrel

MARTIN COUNTY, Fla. - A south Florida woman called police when she thought her car was vandalized in her driveway.  However, her family was stunned to find out who the culprit was: a nesting squirrel.

The squirrel decided it wanted to take a bite out of the Ziegler family's car.

Animal control experts said when squirrels want to nest, they can do it anywhere.

"Not unusual at all," said Hugh Curran of Absolute Critter Removal. "If they're looking to make a nest, chewing to find a cavity for them to make that nest, that's not unusual at all."

The family said they are waiting to fix the damage to the car until the critter decides to find a new home.
