Good Samaritan helps out squirrel with a coffee cup stuck on its head

Heartwarming footage of a man freeing a hapless squirrel after it got its head stuck in a coffee cup.

The video, shot in Gatineau, Canada last year, shows the squirrel running and jumping in panic as its vision is blocked by the cup..

The filmer, who followed the distressed animal, eventually managed to pull the cup off its head.

Once free, the squirrel runs away, visibly unharmed in the ordeal.
