Police were called out by two drivers in distress in Hürth, North Rhine-Westphalia, Germany, on Sunday.
The motorists reported that they were stuck in the middle of the road and had not been able to move further.
This was because two squirrels had hidden themselves under their cars and would not leave, police reported.
Police dispatched a patrol car to the scene to find that two bushy-tailed rodents had made themselves at home underneath the cars.
They reported that the tree-dwellers seemed to perk up at the sight of their uniforms and gave officers their full attention.
The officers then pronounced a dispersal order and the pair moved on.
