He looked fine to me

BERLIN - 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 on 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.

"An aggressive squirrel attacked and injured three people"

Is a phase I never would have expected to hear.

I would have been eating squirrel stew that day had I been there.

It took a 72yo with a cane to kill it- WTF?

Reminds me of Tim Bedore...

"The Bear That Broke into Volkswagen Microbuses

The other animals are out to get us. Iím convinced there is a multi-species conspiracy whose goal is to harass, embarrass and attack humans. In the past I have reported on the eagle that stole a womanís beloved pet Chihuahua at a downtown gas station, and about the woman who beat up a moose after being attacked while cross-country skiing. I, myself, had a violent confrontation with a squirrel in my own home. Now there are reports from northern California of bears that are making concerted efforts to humiliate and starve vacationers.

Apparently the bears have learned to stake out trails in backpacking areas. When a group of campers come by, the bears burst out of the woods sending the terrified humans scurrying down the trail in a panic. Then the bears tear into the abandoned backpacks and camping gear and eat the tuna sandwiches, cheetoes and slim jims the campers brought to the great outdoors. According to my sources the bears break into cars and campers only when they see a cooler inside because they know thatís where theyíll find the food. Other ingenious bears have learned to walk out on the road, stop cars and then pose for pictures with the unwitting tourists, who are more than happy to feed them. The tourists end up with some interesting video while the bears end up with their lunch.

What is my point? The other animals hate us. Lions and tigers and bears are out to finish off the human race. I foresee a time when herds of vicious, marauding squirrels turn every picnic into a bloodbath. Of course, itís impossible to get all the involved species together to discuss ways to end this wild vs. human animal strife because the other animals conveniently havenít yet learned to talk. At least thatís what we think. Who knows what they say when weíre not around?

So this summer be careful out there in the forests and parks of America. Donít do anything to rile up the wildlife. Donít litter or start a forest fire or play loud music. Remember, you are being watched."
