PULASKI, Va. -- Police are praising a Virginia woman who says a squirrel led her down a trail and tugged at her leg to help its injured baby, earning her the nickname "squirrel whisperer."

Tia Powell told police that when she tried to walk away, the squirrel tugged on her pants leg. That's when she realized a cat was ready to attack the squirrels, so she called police and a friend.

The news release says responding officers found the squirrels sitting with the two women, who got them back in their tree.
