Englishwoman Margaret Bousfield, 64, had a surprise visitor down her chimney this winter. But unlike Santa Claus, this unexpected squirrel guest caused damage totalling about $11,500. After falling down the chimney in Hartlepool, UK, the panicked rodent clawed, bit and soiled its way through curtains, carpets and furniture, even scratching through the plastic double-glazing window frames. The creature set off the burglar alarm, and Bousfield and a neighbor finally managed to get the squirrel off the premises. Luckily, the damage was covered by insurance.
