Angry Squirrel Viciously Attacking Residents of this New York Neighborhood

Residents of a Queens neighborhood are dealing with a strange threat.

People living in the New York City borough’s Rego Park neighborhood claim an aggressive squirrel has jumped on them and bitten them in the past several weeks, WCBS-TV reported Wednesday.

One resident, Micheline Frederick, showed a bruise on her wrist where she said the squirrel landed on her before biting her fingers and hand.

“We’re wrestling in the snow and there’s blood everywhere and my fingers getting chewed and it won’t let go,” Frederick explained. “Eventually, it just stopped and there I was a big bloody mess.”

“This was an MMA cage match! And I lost!” she added.

Two other residents also told WCBS that the squirrel jumped on them, seemingly for no reason.

“These squirrels are aggressively going after people,” one neighbor added.

The city’s Department of Health told the neighbors to hire a licensed trapper. However, the large metal traps have not captured any squirrels yet.

The reason for the squirrel — or squirrels’ — aggressive behavior is not clear. Small rodents like squirrels rarely contract rabies and are not known to have transmitted it to humans, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

    A squirrel chased and attacked me in Cleveland over 20 years ago. I was running outside in shorts in the winter at Case Western University. It chased after me and tried to bite my leg but only scratched me. It was terrifying and everyone nearby was laughing. Not funny

      Tom remember the liberal white female that kept calling the police on the black man taking foto ‘s of the animals in the park? This is the Communist Nation of New York! The mere presence of some one walking into the park with a B.B. Gun would cause Flight diverted, Airports closed, Bridges locked down and an all out SWAT moment!

    This is the curse of the Mayor squirrel brought on by New York city’s Mayor/Crazy Mayor and the squirrels are a sign from the Animal kingdom that will only get worse with more and more violent attacks until the people of New York City run the pot smoking Crazy Mayor out of town preferably tied feet first to the back of a sanitation garbage truck and then apologize to the squirrels for ever allowing Crazy Mayor to be ushered into office to begin with.

    Vengeance of the Tainted Nutz that are infecting the world. i m ally surprised the someone didn’t blame it on Trump – they must be getting sloppy ! Who knows – perhaps even one person has been going after them first and they are simply defending themselves ? Ours in florida are laid backhand just sit in the trees playing with their nuts.

    I’m guessing the squirrel is hungry and has been hand fed a lot. Now the squirrel expects food when a human is encountered. If you don’t feed him (her – it?) the squirrel could get aggressive. Squirrels I’m assuming are territorial so going to these places carry some food. Trapping and/or killing these animals may be illegal depending where you live.

    Unbelievable! Here is a mommy squirrel attempting to protect an early spring delivery of her baby/babies. Mommy is working on chasing sway perceived danger to her off-spring and people cannot see that just might be the reason for aggressive and protective behavior as they are too close to her offspring. There are still too many leaves on trees to see a next or perhaps strong winds blew the baby/babies out of the nest. Town should get a Park Ranger to see if he/she can find the nest and the baby/babies and return them to the nest. Those idiots who were interviewed are typical NY residents who have zero logic not to think the squirrel acting defensive was to protect a baby or two. If I remember 2 + babies is/was a normal occurrence. Watch some NYC IDIOT KILL HER AND THE BABIES WILL STARVE TO DEATH because of ignorance! Could not 1 person have come-up with what It appeared to be obvious to anyone on the Jersey side of the River?

    Maybe they were Progressive Socialist Communist Fascist Racist Democrats and the squirrel didn’t like what they have done to New York.
