An Ohio detective got a wild surprise when he interviewed a witness in a murder case.Detective Wayne Mackey was questioning a woman in a police station interview room when a small squirrel popped out of her shirt. The woman wasn't shaken when the creature appeared. She simply scooped it up and put it right back where she had it.

"I was not prepared to see a woodland creature in the interview room," said Mackey. "I just kept right on talking to her and listening to her. I didn't acknowledge it at all. I really didn't know what to say."

Mackey says the squirrel seemed happy where it was. The woman is not expected to testify. She and her furry friend are free to stay at home.
