According to the Newark (N.J.) Star-Ledger, a flying squirrel caused quite a commotion in the emergency room at a New Jersey hospital earlier this week.

It took two firefighters 10 minutes to capture the creature on Tuesday night while it repeatedly launched itself from a lamp to avoid being caught, according to the Star-Ledger report. The flying squirrel was released outside, according to the Star-Ledger.
