I can only imagine the chaos that erupted when this squirrel attack happened. These poor folks were more than likely having nightmares for a long time afterwards.
Targeting The Elderly
On the savanna, lions like to target the weak and elderly when they hunt because it’s easier to take down their prey. Apparently, squirrels think the same way. In 2016, a squirrel ravaged a retirement home in Florida.
A squirrel ran through the front door of the Volusia senior home and ran straight for the activity room where several elderly people were quietly seated playing chess, doing puzzles, and reading books. The squirrel began jumping on people, biting into their flesh, and scratching with its claws.
Those who could move ran out of the room screaming, but a few of the immobile people were stuck without a way to escape. Someone was brave enough to grab the squirrel and throw it outside. Several people were bleeding by the end of it, and they had to call 911 for an ambulance to help treat the injuries and administer a rabies vaccine.
I got this article from Listverse. Imagine how helpless some of these folks had to feel when they couldn't move fast enough to avoid the critter's rampage.
Coffee out on the patio this morning. Beautiful day coming up!
