Two people driving down a dirt road in Olkhon, Russia had to stop because it looked like there was an animal in the road. The dashcam was on, as one passenger approached to see what was up.

It turned out to be a gopher who was just a little too chubby and had gotten stuck in his hole. Luckily, the other passenger picked up his phone to record the hilarious moment when the gopher gets pulled up and freed from his narrow confines.

“Stuck in his own hole in the middle of the main road of Olkhon. Had to bail out gluttonous gopher,” he commented after uploading the clip.

The dashcam date says this happened nearly 6 years ago, but we haven’t gotten sick of watching, sharing, and commenting on this little guy flailing his arms around yet.
