Squirrel Attacks Man

Occurred on September 10, 2017 / New Orleans, Louisiana, USA

Info from Licensor: "I was on a daily walk with 90-year-old mom. I saw the squirrel come out of tree and slowly walk toward us. We stopped and squirrel walked over and sniffed my work boot. It appeared that it wanted to climb up my leg, so we walked on. I looked back and squirrel was following about 60 feet behind us. I was curious so I asked my mom to wait while I video. As the video shows, the squirrel walked up to my boot and that's when I have second thoughts about having it climb up my leg. The squirrel was quicker. I had to rip my shirt over my head to get it off and that's when it climbed up to my mom's shoulder. That's her scream you hear. Video of that not available because I flung the phone as I wrestled with the squirrel. We weren't injured, but about 1 1/2 hours later, 4 other people were attacked by the same squirrel. One person went to the ER with bites on their arm and one man was bitten on the leg and is currently getting rabies shots to be safe."
