A squirrel pitch invader ran riot early in QPR's match against Leicester City on Saturday, stopping the game for five minutes while it refused to leave. Leicester striker David Nugent eventually tried to chase it away, flailing his arms and trying to do whatever a squirrel might find scary.

Whatever Nugent did, it worked and the match eventually drifted back into normalcy with Leicester winning 1-0 and Joey Barton getting sent off in the 84th minute for elbowing someone and then arguing his initial booking.
