FRANKLIN PARK, Pa. (WSBT) -- Squirrels are already stashing goodies for winter, and one Pennsylvania woman found that out the hard way.

According to a Facebook post, Chris Persic got a call from his wife Holly on Monday, and she told him her car smelled like it was burning. She then lifted the hood and discovered this:

Chris says there were over 200 -- no, it's not an exaggeration -- walnuts stuffed in there along with a healthy heaping of grass. Luckily, the two were able to clean up the mess and take it to a nearby auto shop to get the vehicle checked out.

"My truck may have had a squirrel chew through/pull out a fuel injector hose, and Holly’s looked like they were storing up for the next 3 winters," Chris said the post. "Was absolutely nuts...no pun intended."

It's a good reminder to routinely check your hood so no furry rodents squeeze their way in!
