A knife-wielding squirrel was spotted by a woman in Canada.
Andrea Diamond was stunned to see a squirrel chewing on a knife in the back garden of her home in Toronto.
Diamond explained that the rodents are commonly seen outside her home but was perplexed when it had picked up a paring knife that she left in her garden.
She tweeted: "So apparently knife-wielding squirrels are a thing now."
Diamond explained how the squirrel gnawed away on the knife handle for a while before leaving the tool behind. However, the animal returned a short time later where it carried on chewing at the sharp utensil.
Fortunately, Diamond added that the squirrel did not appear to have injured itself with the knife.
