Cops in McHenry, Illinois were caught on video trying to get a squirrel out of their station.

The trouble began when the squirrel (we’ll call him Hammy) got trapped between two sets of lobby doors. Several officers opened the doors to get Hammy to go outside, but the rodent refused.

One officer also ran back into the department when Hammy charged at him.

The video ends with the squirrel still between the doors, but the animal eventually escaped.
