Squirrel trapped on railroad tracks decides to ask a random human for help

One day, Nick Allen was out for a walk along some train tracks near his house when something curious caught his eye.

There, in the gap between the railings on a remote stretch of track, was a trapped squirrel. Try as he might, the little creature simply couldn’t get over the steel barrier in front of him.

“I really wanted to help the little guy over the rail,” Allen told The Dodo. “I was a little cautious, because I wasn’t sure how safe it was to try and touch the little guy while trying to help him.”

The last thing he wanted to do was stress the squirrel even more by grabbing it. But, to Allen’s surprise, it was the squirrel that took the lead.

Unprompted, the squirrel scrambled up Allen’s leg, clearly calling for help.

Allen was blown away. “When he climbed up my leg, I absolutely thought, ‘This can’t be true at all,'” Allen said. “This wild little creature just crawled on me. I must be dreaming or something.”

But he wasn’t dreaming. The squirrel had decided to trust him.

With that unlikely passenger still clinging tightly to his leg, Allen continued walking along the tracks until he found a nice shady spot for the squirrel to take refuge. The little fellow, no doubt grateful for the free ride to safety, knew this was his stop.

“He just jumped off and went straight up a tree!” Allen said.

The trapped squirrel’s life had been saved. But the events of that day also left Allen grateful

“It made me feel so pure and loved that this little guy needed help and just jumped on this random human. I felt trusted. It was so pure,” he said. “I know I’ve been in spots where I couldn’t get out without a little help, and all I needed was a little helping hand. Or in this case, a friendly leg.”
