• A neighborhood in Bennington, Vermont is under siege…and the culprit? A “rogue squirrel,” as the AP report humorously refers to the animal. At least three people claim to have been attacked by the horrific beast. The suspicion is that the squirrel was raised by humans and then released into the wild, hence the reason why the bloodthirsty creature is not afraid of humans. Said Veterinarian Robert Johnson: “A tame squirrel is a loose cannon sometimes.” Truer words have never been spoken. Fear the beast, residents of Bennington. Fear it! [msnbc]
