A Canadian man set up his GoPro camera with a piece of bread attached to attract animals.

A squirrel can be seen cautiously approaching the camera and it appears that the squirrel carried the camera into a nearby tree before dropping it.

David Freiheit, of Montreal, published the video on YouTube earlier this month and it has already amassed nearly 500,000 page views.
