Squirrel Steals GoPro, Records Harrowing Escape

Video: After a squirrel mistook it for a tasty nut, YouTuber Viva Frei wasn't sure if he'd ever see his GoPro camera again. But he did it eventually get it back — and more. The GoPro was actually recording from the squirrel's perspective as it raced through the branches of a tree, and the footage is amazing. Strapping a GoPro to something as small as a squirrel is almost impossible compared to getting neat first-person footage from larger animals like a cheetah. But the trick is to apparently make it think the camera is dinner, and then hope it doesn't actually eat your expensive gear.
