1842: The Webster-Ashburton Treaty was signed, delimiting the eastern section of the Canadian-American border. The treaty established the boundaries between the St. Croix and Connecticut rivers, between Lake Superior and the Lake of the Woods, and between Lakes Huron and Superior
2018: In Karlsruhe, Germany, police responded to an emergency call: A baby squirrel was chasing a man down the street and would not give up. When police arrived on the scene, the squirrel was still in pursuit, but then the exhausted rodent suddenly stopped and fell asleep. The police named the small squirrel "Karl-Friedrich" and took him into custody. Soon after, he was taken to an animal rescue center, where he was later reported to be doing well. Police said likely the baby squirrel had lost its mother and had fixated on the man as a replacement.
