Squirrel Goes Nuts On Maine Teen Taking 'Selfie'

Posted: Updated:
AUBURN, Maine - A Maine teenager is flustered but not hurt after a photo op with a squirrel went awry.
Seventeen-year-old Brian Genest of Auburn said Wednesday he saw what appeared to be a friendly squirrel on a hand rail while walking through John Chestnut Park near Tampa, Florida. He was on a trip looking at colleges.
Genest took a "selfie" of himself and the squirrel, but the flash and noises from his camera phone scared the animal, which climbed under the teen's shirt and hung onto his back.
Genest's mother snapped photos of the hoopla, which are posted on her son's Facebook page. She said Thursday that Genest had approached the squirrel making clicking sounds with his tongue to get closer.
She said neither her son nor the squirrel was harmed.
