Squirrel goes on rampage, injures 3

Thu Jun 14, 10:42 AM ET

BERLIN (Reuters) - An aggressive squirrel attacked and injured three people in a German town before a 72-year-old pensioner dispatched the rampaging animal with his crutch.

The squirrel first ran into a house in the southern town of Passau, leapt from behind on a 70-year-old woman, and sank its teeth into her hand, a local police spokesman said Thursday.

With the squirrel still hanging from her hand, the woman ran onto the street in panic, where she managed to shake it off.

The animal then entered a building site and jumped on a construction worker, injuring him on the hand and arm, before he managed to fight it off with a measuring pole.

"After that, the squirrel went into the 72-year-old man's garden and massively attacked him on the arms, hand and thigh," the spokesman said. "Then he killed it with his crutch."

The spokesman said experts thought the attack may have been linked to the mating season or because the squirrel was ill.

I know this shouldn't be funny. I'd be horrified if a squirrel attacked my gran. and how terrified the people were here , but I found myself laughing . sorry.

I blame it on the booze , squrrels never could handle their beer.

I have a best friend who hates squirrels. Maybe something like this happened to her when she was a child.

:lol: I shouldn't laugh, but that's hilarious. Picturing this small town living in fear of this little fuzzy animal... it's like some bad horror movie. Squirrels are a menace though, I saw one attacking a chicken unprovoked at a zoo in Florida once, I was throwing sticks to scare it off but it kept coming back for some more <_<

<VBG> Love those squirrels too. Great pictures.

Rampaging squirrels? Think "The Birds" - Hitchcock's birds. ; )
