A series of ferocious squirrel attacks has residents of a California neighborhood on edge, with some wondering how to curb their recent aggressiveness. Picnickers are being bitten mercilessly; some of the animals are even jumping into baby strollers.
Others are walking up to small children and attempting to wrestle the food out of their hands, then viciously biting and scratching them. Some patrons have elected to get precautionary rabies shots.
Park officials are suggesting that the animals are getting more aggressive due to the local trash cans being sealed recently, causing them to use bolder and more invasive methods to find food. The county is considering euthanasia as a viable option.
