Yet another example of the evil of these creatures...
Squirrel Attacks in Winter Park, Florida
Apparently there have been seven... SEVEN... people attacked by this maniacal rodent... one of them a three-year-old boy. I guarantee you if that had been MY son, the rodent would've suffered a torturous end right then and there. Ain't no rat gonna bite MY kid and keep breathing air.
The kids and I were driving home this afternoon with a severe thunderstorm on our heels, and while we were driving through one of the towns on the highway to North Ruralville, a squirrel dashed out in front of the van and suicided under my tires. I smiled and silently thanked him for saving me the effort of swerving to hit him.
