Yes! There are a lot of crazy squirrels out there!
And some of the things that really drive them nuts are:
If they sense you don’t share their worldview and politics!
If they return home after a long day of feeding to find that the path to their abode has been blocked off. When squirrels can’t get back their usual way they do what comes natural – they go bonkers and try to find a new way.
If you infringe on their territory or space which happens to be everywhere around them.
There must be a lot of squirrels in Washington DC.
Because they’re a squirrel. And that’s what squirrels naturally do?
As are so many of us!
If they have a sore throat and can’t make the usual chirping sounds and/or can’t expel a little gas!
A fart that is!
Because they’re bullies at heart, especially if they smell fear waffling from us humans!
Good hygiene can help!
If there are no Mad Squirrel Breweries in the local area!
Especially on Sundays during the Nutball season!
If you get to close to their paw-made leather motorcycle jackets or sissy ball bags.
But only in North America!
If the previous Homo Sapien they encountered really pissed them off!
Wait! That applies to most of us!
if they have been infected with Mad Squirrel Disease!
They must all be infected!
If you feed them. If you don’t feed them! If they sense you may or may not feed them!
What the hell does that mean!
If they sense you might mess with their nuts!
Male squirrels that is!!!
Female squirrels? The just harbor ‘nut envy!’
Does anyone out there have any other reasons to share!?
But fear not though! You see, squirrels don’t carry rabies. They are however known to carry the bubonic plague.
