Killer Squirrels

Squirrels have bitten to death a stray dog which was barking at them in a Russian park, local media report.

Passers-by were too late to stop the attack by the black squirrels in a village in the far east, which reportedly lasted about a minute.

 

They are said to have scampered off at the sight of humans, some carrying pieces of flesh.

 

A pine cone shortage may have led the squirrels to seek other food sources, although scientists are sceptical.

 

The attack was reported in parkland in the centre of Lazo, a village in the Maritime Territory, and was witnessed by three local people.

 

A "big" stray dog was nosing about the trees and barking at squirrels hiding in branches overhead when a number of them suddenly descended and attacked, reports say.

 

 

 

"They literally gutted the dog," local journalist Anastasia Trubitsina told Komsomolskaya Pravda newspaper.

 

"When they saw the men, they scattered in different directions, taking pieces of their kill away with them."

 

Mikhail Tiyunov, a scientist in the region, said it was the first he had ever heard of such an attack.

 

While squirrels without sources of protein might attack birds' nests, he said, the idea of them chewing a dog to death was "absurd".

 

"If it really happened, things must be pretty bad in our forests," he added.

 

Komosmolskaya Pravda notes that in a previous incident this autumn chipmunks terrorised cats in a part of the territory.

 

A Lazo man who called himself only Mikhalich said there had been "no pine cones at all" in the local forests this year.

 

"The little beasts are agitated because they have nothing to eat," he added.

 

Do you reckon a load of Squirrels could ever chin a human being. I personally would be fearful of meeting a human sized Russian squirrel. Lets hope they dont mutate, eh?

Speaking of squirrels, does anyone know where I could buy a tortoise, I used to have one and then it died. Probably bitten by a dieseased squirrel, like that horrific thing above.

 

They're illegal to buy/sell in the UK.

"Probably bitten by a diseased squirrel" - and your evidence for this spectacularly random accusation? :lol:

They were always after him ever since he climbed their tree and abducted one of their little joey baby things.

Could have been the squirrels Don, the grey ones are little fuckers. Single handedly responsible for ethnic cleansing of the red squirrel from these shores. Bastids.

 

Let's be clear Chez. These aren't squirrels we're talking about. Poor 'ickle red squiwwels are soft, loving critters. These feral little black and grey bastids are nothing but rabid, plague-carrying street criminals. Gassing's too good for them, I say! :wullie:
