Police: “We can’t invent that” story‼️

SLIDELL, La. (BRPROUD) – The Slidell Police Department responded to a squirrel situation Tuesday.

The situation wasn’t funny though as the call involved an elderly man being attacked by a squirrel.

Yes, you understood that correctly.

“The caller said that ‘a 78-year-old man was being actively attacked by a squirrel, which was eating his hand.’ The man was trying to choke the squirrel but couldn’t get a good hold” , according to the Slidell Police Department.

Upon arrival, first responders attempted to intervene after seeing “the vicious squirrel” and the 78-year-old man still fighting.

The squirrel was separated from the man and later died from injuries sustained in the attack.

The 78-year-old suffered what are called “significant” injuries, although he is expected to make a full recovery.

So how did this attack unfold? The SPD says: ‘The man was walking outside his house when the squirrel came from the direction of his roof and attacked him.

As far as the police can tell, the attack was not provoked in this case.

Believe it or not, this isn’t the first squirrel attack at Slidell this year.

The first reported squirrel attack took place during a Mardi Gras parade in February.
