SUMMIT COUNTY, Ohio (WOIO) - A domesticated squirrel named Cricket got stuck in a tree more than 60 feet in the air Tuesday evening and Green firefighters came to the rescue.

“It may sound normal that a squirrel would be in a tree, but Cricket was on a leash and it became wrapped around a branch to the point where he became entangled and could not move,” posted Green firefighters on Facebook.

Firefighters said Cricket’s rescue was a unique situation and not part of their normal response.
