You really can’t make this stuff up!!! Granted it is a London story but it had to do with squirrels
which we deal with all year long plus it was too funny not to put on our blog.
The headline is “Crack-crazed squirrels terrorize South London” and it is a very true statement. In a desperate search for a fix, eschewing their traditional nuts and digging up residents' front gardens in what appears to be a credible zoological threat squirrels are hooked on crack. HOW???
Crack dealers and addicts have apparently taken to burying their stashes in people's gardens in the streets around the suburban towns after police crackdowns forced them from the concrete of cities. Neighborhood residents are reporting “ill-looking squirrels with bloodshot eyes desperately digging. It was almost as if it was trying to find hidden crack rocks." Other residents have seen squirrels become unusually aggressive. Crack squirrels are a recognized problem in America. They are common in parks used by addicts in New York and Washington DC. They have been known to attack park visitors in their search for a fix.
Be careful you do not get mugged or car jacked by a crack addicted squirrel
