LOWELL, MASS. (WHDH) - Police investigating a report of an abandoned infant at a store in Lowell on Friday were surprised when they found a box containing baby squirrels.
“A call that originally came in as an infant being abandoned at a local store took an interesting twist,” the Lowell Police Department said in a tweet. “The ‘infant’ was actually three baby squirrels!”
A Lowell Animal Control officer came to pick up the squirrels, all of which are said to be doing well.
The squirrels have since been taken to a local wildlife rescue.
