First we noted the squirrel attacks in Florida, Next we noted the racoons taking over Olympia, Washington. Now the squirrels are at it again, this time in Mountain View, CA! (NBC11) This time a squirrel actually attacked a 4-year-old child and there have been 6 incidents since May.
I wrote here about how these stories scare me: how are we to convince the terrorists we have the will to defeat them if we’re scared of rodents? At least in this case, the city is killing the little pests instead of neutering them or giving them contraceptives?! And, at the current time, the poll on the NBC11.com site by the story says 71% of the respondents think that’s just fine.
Update: A blog dedicated to When Squirrels Attack! ;-)
