2015 - DEC - Animal Attacks

2015-12-01 - Squirrel goes on rampage, attacks eight people, in coastal Novato (California), warning issued:

Quote: "Eight people were attacked by what is believed to be a human-raised squirrel in the Pleasant Valley area of Novato between Nov. 13 and Friday, the Marin Humane Society and the Marin County Department of Public Health said. Five attacks occurred around the intersection of Sutro Avenue and Vineyard Road, Marin Humane Society spokeswoman Lisa Bloch said. A squirrel ran up to the victims, crawled up their bodies and bit the victims in the arms, legs, hands or head, and there have been reports the squirrel jumped out of a tree and attacked the victims, Bloch said."

Quote: "On the day after Thanksgiving, Williams said he was working on small tasks around his garage, off of Vineyard Road, when he looked up to see a gray squirrel scampering towards him. 'He jumped me three or four different times,' Williams said Wednesday. 'I got him off my shoulder the first time. He was clinging pretty hard. When I got him off, my hand and arm were torn up. When I got him off, he’d get back on.' Williams said his wife, Norma Williams, alarmed by his screams, ran out into the garage with a broom. The squirrel then began to attack her, he said."

Note: I don't think I'd be speaking to cameras if I got owned by a squirrel! On the other hand, thanks for speaking to cameras, Mr. Williams! Heh...
