Police in Canada, were called after a home was vandalized, and the television was turned on and left working.

Police in Ontario, were called on Thursday night, to a property after the caretaker discovered what she thought was a robbery.

The house was in disarray, lamps were knocked over, picture frames were on the ground, and the television was on.

An investigation revealed that the culprit was a squirrel that had entered the house through the chimney, and ran through the residence.

The squirrel trashed the house and stepped on the remote control, which turned on the television. Police officers in Port Hope, ruled housebreaking is unfounded and the squirrel is being blamed for causing the break-in.
