Watch: Squirrel runs on the field during Packers vs. Vikings game

Sunday November 22nd, 2015

A brave squirrel ran onto the field during Sunday’s game between the Green Bay Packers and Minnesota Vikings. 

The squirrel ran down the sideline with what appeared to be sub 4.0-40 speed before eventually being wrangled by security. Can this squirrel catch? Because the Packers’ struggling offense sure could use a speedy receiver. 


This continues a rash of running squirrels in American sports. Squirrels also found their way on court at the U.S. Open and in the dugout of a Phillies and Cardinals game.
