Squirrels are scary. Just Me has blogged about a recent squirrel attack. I think most of us can relate.
According to Just Me, "There is just something about those beady little eyes that makes you uneasy."
My squirrel attack story happened in the early 80's. I was in my last year of college and sharing a house with friends off campus. One day, while walking home from classes, out of the blue, a squirrel came barreling right at me. It's hard little head slammed into my foot, and then, with it's mission accomplished, it scurried off and ran up a tree. I had a witness, some guy about 1/2 a block behind me. We both commented on how weird the attack was and then I limped on home.
Make no mistake in thinking they are cute little fuzz balls. Squirrels are dangerous. You have been warned.
