The Slidell Police Department in Louisiana responded to a squirrelly situation. A caller to 911 stated that a 78-year-old man was actively being attacked by a squirrel, who was eating his hand. The man was attempting to choke the squirrel, but was unable to obtain a good grip. Upon arrival, first responders attempted to intervene. The squirrel was separated from the man and later died from injuries sustained in the attack. The 78-year-old man suffered what are being called ‘significant’ injuries, but is expected to fully recover.
