Mechanic Finds Nest of Sleeping Baby Squirrels in Car

(Video Link)

The owner brought the car into the mechanic's shop in Harleysville, Pennsylvania. There was a funny noise coming from the engine. So the mechanic popped the hood to have a look. Something was wrong, but also unbelievably adorable.

On top of the car engine was a leaf and moss nest containing 3 baby squirrels, all of them asleep. The Daily Mail reports:

The owners had taken the car into the garage after they heard strange 'screaming' sounds coming from inside it.

They said it hadn't been running properly and they could hear peculiar noises coming from the vehicle.  

The squirrels had chewed through some of the wiring, which was perhaps why the car was not functioning properly.

When I lived in Michigan (40 years+) we had many problems with squirrels chewing up the internet/tv cables. We would lose our cable/internet service and eventually the internet company would come along and find out that the darned squirrels had enjoyed the cable box highly!
