When Squirrels Attack

I’ve told Whitey that it’s not safe to hand-feed the squirrels.

Yet, he keeps buying them peanuts and loading them up every morning. I have to admit, it’s amusing to watch. He stands outside and clicks his tongue to “call” them, and has even named them “The Big Stromboli” and “The Little Calzone”.

This morning, “Stromboli” tried to take off with Whitey’s finger clamped firmly in his mouth. I heard a muffled cry from where I was in the house, and by the time Whitey ran inside, the blood was flowing furiously from his fingertip.

“He got me!” he yelled. “Little bastard attacked me! Grab the peroxide! I need stitches!”

He went on to tell me that the rodent had dragged him 3-feet in the air by his finger, and now that the squirrel has tasted human blood, he’ll never be satisfied with just nuts.

The bite was a big one; really deep, too. We cleaned it out as best we could, and wrapped it tightly. He’s been pouting all morning about it throbbing.

Hey Whitey – I Told You So.

    Any accident you walk away from is a good one. Especially if you learn from it.

    I suppose what we learned from this incident is to never, ever, give your squirrels the names of Italian food. 🙂

    Hand feeding rodents… That’s nuttier than a squirrel turd.

    When Whitey is getting his rabies shots… he will be wishing that he would have been eating the peanuts and drinking beer while training his dogs to chase the squirrels.

    Thanks for turning on motocross last night, a real sport that takes balls not shares one…

    Sounds like your squirrels need a good dose of lead.
