A town named Sea Girt in New Jersey, USA every year holds an annual Christmas tree lighting ceremony but this year the ceremony was about to get affected as the wires of the lights were found cut before the occasion. Police earlier believed that Christmas hating vandals were making mischief but soon officials found the culprit. The culprit was a four-legged squirrel and no vandal.

Only one day was left for the ceremony so officials brought in reinforcements and rushed to the site to repair the severed wires so the event could go as per schedule. This is not all they also decided to keep an eye on the tree to catch the culprit. But no vandalism happened and the whole ceremony was celebrated ideally without any hiccups from vandals.

But a day later, police officials caught the squirrel in action who was trying to cut the wires again in the neighborhood. The police of Sea Girt charged the squirrel and also took photographs as proof for the trials. Yes, they photographed squirrel who was nibbling on the wires. What is weirder is that the police department of Sea Girt proudly showed off their work on how they nabbed the squirrel on social media site Facebook. Here is their post:

“It tells me they definitely wanted to do it and they want to accomplish their goal of making sure the lights don’t work,” the police officer told Dailymail. The poor animal was charged with “Criminal mischief” and was arrested but the animal was later released on bail. What are your views? Do you know such bizarre stories?
