Crack Squirrels?!?!

    Squirrels go nuts on crack


    SQUIRRELS are getting hooked on crack cocaine — hidden by addicts in gardens.

    They are digging up the stashes and eating the mega-addictive drug, which comes in small chunks.

    Several have been spotted behaving bizarrely in Brixton, South London, since a police blitz against pushers and users.

    One resident said: “My neighbour said dealers had used my garden to hide crack.

    “Just an hour earlier I’d seen a squirrel digging in the flower-beds.

    “It was ill-looking and its eyes looked bloodshot, but it kept on desperately digging. It seems a strange thing to say, but it seemed to know what it was looking for.”

    Other residents have seen squirrels become unusually aggressive.

    The RSPCA said: “These animals are big foragers. They are attracted by smell and will dig up what they fancy.

    “If a squirrel did open a bag of crack and start consuming it there is no doubt it would die pretty quickly.”

    Crack squirrels are a recognised problem in America. They are common in parks used by addicts in New York and Washington DC.

    They have been known to attack park visitors in their search for a fix.

    In a drug infused rage, they are also attacking dogs. They must be stopped.

    I cant help but laugh at this, too funny! There was this silly story on CNN, wish I could find it, featured this squirrel at some US University campus who liked to eat bike seats. It would chew away at peoples bike seats as they were chained up.

    Postal workers haver had to face down Anthrax threats, biting dogs, long walks in the sleet, snow and rain, and now this - looney squirrels on the rampage. The residents of Oil City, Pennsylvania can blame a deranged squirrel if they didn't get their mail delivered on Monday.
    Local media reports that Postal Service employee Barb Dougherty says "she was attacked and bitten by the squirrel while delivering mail in the town about 75 miles north of Pittsburgh."
    The Derrick newspaper reports Dougherty was putting the mail in the box when a squirrel jumped on her, ran up her leg and onto her back.
    An ambulance took Dougherty to a hospital, where she was treated for cuts and scratches from the raging rodent. She was also given the first series of rabies shots.
    The squirrel was snuffed by local animal control, who will test it for rabies.

    Soon they'll start feasting on the soft flesh of our children.

    Do you want to get close enough to a crack squirrel and look it in the eyes? I don't. ;)
