Hope the link works, but this guy and his wife were assaulted by a squirrel!

"Animal control officers have been patrolling the area, searching for the squirrel. Warning flyers have also been posted." I want one of the flyers for my deer camp

What's sad is that we've hit a point in America where 1) Squirrel attacks make news 2) it's considered a "life and death struggle" and 3) no one has at least a pellet gun to end the reign of terror the squirrel is apparently doing.

I imagine pellet guns are illegal in San Fran... Don't know that though. I know if I have the opportunity to wrap my hand around the animal attacking me, it won't be attacking any more. When he said he threw it and it was stunned I assumed they were going to say he stepped on it... Nope. This murderous beast still runs around

@gizmo I know right, the fact that a squirrel has had an reign of terror on any human population scares me for our country.

I used to own a trained pack of squirrel dogs (american Treeing Feists) that would have gladly ended this squirrels rampage.

Well apparently they're vicious killers so it should go without saying you will be charged. Big 5 watch out there's a new sheriff in town.

@gizmo should I bring solids? Is a bolt gun or a double preferred when chasing this beast?

Definitely a double with solids. Only thing that can stop a vicious squirrel charge.

This whole thing reminds me of the killer rabbit scene from montey Python and the search for the holy Grail.

@lbgsafaris ,

I told you about a month ago how dangerous these things were and you laughed at me.

Anybody ever seen a double barrel pellet gun?

I imagine pellet guns are illegal in San Fran... Don't know that though.

I did a quick google search and it does appear that it is illegal to own a pellet gun in San Fransisco. :A Whacky: At least it was just a few years ago.

I've actually been charged by a ground squirrel when I was a teenager. I was in Yellowstone on one of the platform trails near Old Faithful. This squirrel came running at me chirping up a storm and started clawing at my socks and ran away when I tried to kick it. It was one of the funniest things I have ever seen.

If anyone makes a double pellet gun that has half decent lines to it I'll be the first in line to buy it

Here are the three main species of dangerous North American squirrels.
1) wolf squirrel

2) lion squirrel

3) Kung Fu squirrel

All of which are highly dangerous and extreme caution should be used around them.

Hi Jody,
I have been looking for ideas on the best way to display my European mounts from Africa. I came across some of your shield work and was wondering if you would be willing to make one for me? If so, please let me know the cost. I like the shield with the two spears that you built for a member years ago. Thanks.
