Squirrel Goes Nuts!

A ferocious squirrel went on the rampage in Germany this week, attacking three people before meeting its match in an angry 72-year-old.
Police in the southern town of Passau said the creature attacked a 70-year-old woman on Tuesday, sinking its teeth into her hand.
It next entered a building site and jumped on a construction worker, injuring his hand and arm before he fought it off with a pole.
A police spokesman said the squirrel then finally met its end - but it didn't go down without a fight.
"The squirrel went into the 72-year-old man's garden and attacked him on the arms, hand and thigh," the spokesman said. "Then he killed it with his crutch."
He explained that experts thought the creature's behaviour could have been brought on by the mating season, or it could have been ill.

I just thought this was a funny, bizarre story. So I guess the 72 year old guy is now known as "The Squirrelinator"!--hee

I fed squirrels when I was a kid. I like 'em. These people probably had it coming. The construction worker was trying to destroy the squirrel habitat. Would make a good Disney movie (as long as they move it to a different location. German people don't make good Disney characters).
