ENFIELD, Conn. – Emergency crews in Connecticut were at the right place at the right time when they saw a squirrel with a yogurt cup stuck to its head.

Enfield EMS didn't respond to a call. The squirrel was running around with the cup on its head in the department's driveway.

"Sure enough there's a squirrel stuck, in a little bit of dismay and one of our paramedics Ralph was able to put a blanket over it, capture it and EMT Keith was able to remove the cup from its head," Enfield EMS Chief Gary Wiemokly told WWLP.

The rescue went viral after the department posted the video the Enfield EMS Facebook page.

It appears the squirrel took the yogurt cup ot of the dumpster in the parking lot.
