Pennsylvania squirrels hide more than 200 walnuts under SUV hood: See the photo

You could end up with a little surprise from the critters in your yard.

Mr Persic said that the vehicle was cleaned and the nuts and grass were removed from under the bonnet.

A Pennsylvania couple made a baffling discovery after smelling what they thought was something burning from the hood of their vehicle.

He told her to look under the hood, and she discovered a stash of walnuts, grass and hay that squirrels were apparently storing for winter.

"They were everywhere, under the battery, near the radiator fan", Persic later told CNN.

"The squirrels worked pretty fast", Chris Persic said. On the other hand, Persic claims they've already requested a quote on removing the black walnut tree located on their driveway, and we have a feeling that one may be a bit more expensive.

Although 41 USA states reported cases, 70 of them occurred in five states: Texas, California Arizona and Louisiana. Although it's easily curable in adults, untreated syphilis can wreak havoc on the brain, heart and nervous system.

Chris Persic said it took him nearly an hour to "clean out over 200 (not an exaggeration) walnuts and grass from under the hood". It took them about an hour to pull everything out, and the walnuts filled up half a trash can. 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", he wrote.

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

Although there was no damage to the auto, Mr Persic warned others to check under their bonnets.

"Fortunately, it wasn't all dry because they said it probably would have caught fire". "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 a while", he wrote in a Facebook post October 7 that has since been shared over 600 times.
