Wow, this is a really sad squirrel story — a squirrel in Florida jumps onto the face of a toddler, and won’t let go. In the process, the boy’s rescuers are injured, too. This poor child is going to develop a terrible fear of squirrels, I’m sure.
According to the news article, “3-year-old Kevin was bitten 9 times in the attack, the trooper was treated at a local medical facility for his injuries, and another adult was also wounded in the attack – from which the squirrel escaped unharmed.”
Like some of the readers, I too wonder if this squirrel has rabies?
