Squirrel Crawls Out Of East Mountain Family’s Toilet

You would expect to hear of a snake or spider popping out of a toilet bowl, but a squirrel?

A man in Cedar Crest was in his bathroom to take a shower. Then Lindsay Jones heard her husband screaming and ran in. There was a creature covered in sludge behind a laundry basket. It had just crawled out of the toilet.

Jones and her husband bolted from the room and closed the door behind them. They couldn’t tell what the creature was, so they called Animal Control. Isaac Price responded and when he opened he door, there was a squeaky clean squirrel. He figures it took a bath in the toilet bowl.

Price took it and released it into the wild. They’re still trying to figure out how in the world it got into a toilet vent and then the bowl.
