"I told her to pop the hood, and this is the picture she sent me", Persic told KDKA. Instead, she found over 200 walnuts and grass that took the Pittsburgh couple nearly an hour to dig out.

Squirrelling away supplies for winter took on a whole new meaning for a couple in the United States after they discovered their car's bonnet was full of walnuts and grass.

"They were everywhere, under the battery, near the radiator fan", he told CNN.

The mechanics reportedly found enough walnuts to fill half a trashcan.

Persic doesn't say anything about the damage to the Kia, but seeing how his wife was able to drive with walnuts and all, it's probably nothing that can't be fixed.

As autumn set in, walnuts started falling from the trees a few weeks ago meaning the squirrels must have worked quickly to build their hoard.

This news is actually significant, as John Wick 4 was greenlit a week into John Wick 3's kick-ass time in cinemas. Given how important strong action direction is to the series, he'll have to bring his best game to it.

Amazingly, they found even more walnuts burrowed inside the vehicle.

Mr Persic said that the vehicle was cleaned and the nuts and grass were removed from under the bonnet.

Chris raced over to meet his wife at the library and the two began picking out as many walnuts as they could in the pouring rain.

"My truck may have had a squirrel chew through/pull out a fuel injector hose, and Holly's looked like they were storing up for the next three winters". "Was absolutely nuts.no pun intended".

Chris Persic said people have messaged him that they checked under their hoods because of what happened to him, and he said he hopes people continue to check on their cars.
