Arizona officials: Squirrel, snake in bizarre brawl

GOLD CANYON, Ariz. -- Authorities rushed to an Arizona woman's home after she called to report a brutal brawl on her back patio- between a ground squirrel and a gopher snake.

KPHO-TV reports that Apache Junction firefighters recently stumbled upon the bizarre backyard beat down at the Gold Canyon home and believe the two were going at it at least 30 minutes before their arrival.

Firefighter Ryan Philips immediately grabbed his smart phone to record the wildlife fight, which continued until firefighters stepped in and broke it up.

Officials say the snake had a few wounds when it was released back into the desert while the squirrel had only a couple of injuries.

Philips says he believed the squirrel had a nest nearby.
