Update on Dad / When Squirrels Attack
One morning last week, as I was driving to Jasper, GA, to pick up my mom to drive her to the hospital (she is unable to drive because of vision problems), I passed beneath a tree branch with my convertible top down and a squirrel jumped down, landed on top of my head, and scampered into the back seat and jumped out of the car. Thankfully, I was wearing a baseball cap and survived the attack without injury. The squirrel left behind in my car some leaves and bits of the small tree branch it had jumped or fallen from.
My brother Jason said he read somewhere that squirrels are beginning to attack humans. I don't know if this was an attack or the result of a squirrel misjudging the strength of a tree branch. I did find this photo, though, at the website of Relevant magazine, which seems to support my brother's theory.
