‘Absolutely nuts’: Squirrels hid 200 walnuts under this SUV’s hood

‘Absolutely nuts’: Squirrels hid 200 walnuts under this SUV’s hood”

Squirrelling away supplies for winter took on a whole new meaning for a couple in the United States, after they discovered a hoodful of walnuts and grass in their auto.

"There's definitely an angry squirrel wife right now wondering where all the nuts went", Chris said. She had it inspected recently, and the walnuts only started to fall a couple of weeks ago, so this happened pretty quickly.

Instead, she found over 200 walnuts and grass that took the Pittsburgh couple nearly an hour to dig out.

A couple in the USA city of Pittsburgh found a surprise stash of hundreds of walnuts hidden under their auto bonnet. The couple took the vehicle to a mechanic, who found half a trashcan's worth of walnuts under the engine. "My truck may have had a squirrel chew through/pull out a fuel injector hose, and Holly's looked like they were storing up for the next 3 winters", he wrote in a post that has since gone viral.

"Was absolutely nuts ... no pun intended".

"Fortunately it was raining out so the grass was pretty damp... could have caught on fire and been a different story, rather than a amusing one!"

There was no damage to the vehicle, beyond it needing a cleanup.

The grass under the hood was damp, but he thinks it could have caught fire if it wasn't. "Something insane that happened, that could've turned out bad, ended up being a little amusing".

"Long story short, if you park outside, do yourself a favor and check under the hood every once in awhile", Chris Persic wrote on Facebook.
