"Vampire Squirrel" attacks residents, is shot

Your rating: None Average: 5 (1 vote)

Yesterday (7th November), the Sun reported that a "vampire squirrel" had been terrorising the residents of Knutsford, Cheshire.
The "ghastly grey fiend" attacked six people before fleeing to the safety of a fence. "You don't expect that from a squirrel," said one victim, whose ankle was "lacerated".
However, Today's edition updates the story. The squirrel has been shot dead while attacking the grandfather of one of his victims.

That really is a shame. I wonder what got into him/her that made it do that.

..... reading too many "Bunnicula" books perhaps? ;)
