Renegade Squirrel

A Vermont neighborhood is being stalked by a renegade gray squirrel.
Several people in Bennington say they've been attacked by a squirrel over the last few weeks.
Kevin McDonald tells the Bennington Banner he was shoveling snow when the squirrel jumped onto him. He says he threw the animal off, but it twice jumped back onto him. A game warden says there have been other reports, too.
One woman is being treated for exposure to rabies, but Vermont Public Health Veterinarian Robert Johnson says there's never been a case of a squirrel passing rabies to a human.
Johnson says it's possible the squirrel was raised as a pet and lost its fear of humans. He says the squirrel might "go ballistic" when it encounters people it doesn't recognize.

Damn Vermont Ben & Jerry tree huggers. When the hell is someone there going to go ballistic on the squirrel and throw a Birkenstock at it?

Hey, they think we can't do anything about liberals, either.

Bring their goon tactics into a CCW friendly state and see what happens.

One on the ground - 500 whimpering.

Vermont carry is not practiced much in Bennington, one of the 3 B's. Bennington specializes in welfare local mom's and welfare refugees and gang bangers from the Troylet. (Troy, NY). They are too full from eating steak and other high priced food bought with Food stamps to track down and beat the vermin to death for the stew pot.

Brattleboro is full of ex-Massholes that would shit themselves dry if they saw someone with a pistol. Burlington, is 50/50 rich elitists and Marxist trustifarians. Which would never allow you to shoot a rampaging animal attacking anyone it comes across. They would say it is being oppressed, and correct in fighting back against evil, white Republicans. Who are the default villains in the B's.
In the rest of Vermont, that is fine meaty eating for a family, and the damn tree rat would have been shot right off. "Cause real Vermonters pack heat when they shovel snow...

Sounds like the old Ray Steven's song about the squirrl going beserk in the Baptis Church.
