Beware of the Killer Squirrels


I was only thinking this morning how nice it is to be able to see the squirrels in the park each day. Now, I’m wondering if it isn’t such a good thing: Apparently, in Russia a “pack” (what’s the correct collective nouns for squirrels? I don’t think anyone has needed one before) of squirrels have “gutted” a stray dog. And we all thought the Willie Wonkers squirrels were dangerous. Naturally, in the best traditions of Hollywood, these killer squirrels are dressed in ninja-black. You wouldn’t find our cute red squirrels attacking dogs — but that’s probably because a nasty grey squirrel has it in a headlock.
