They're after our nuts!

And all this time you thought they were just cute little, nut-loving rodents! Ha! The beady eyes and the cold stare gave them away. Keep this in mind on your next ride in the park. I'm telling you - they're trying to round up all our nuts, but their REAL intent is to take over the world! Remember, these are RUSSIAN squirrels!

Squirrels kill dog

By David Pescovitz

A pack of squirrels at a park in the Lazo village of Russia's Maritime Territory reportedly ganged up on a stray dog that was barking up at them in the trees. Witnesses say the squirrels jumped down, attacked the dog, and killed it. From the BBC News:

"They literally gutted the dog," local journalist Anastasia Trubitsina told Komsomolskaya Pravda newspaper.

"When they saw the men, they scattered in different directions, taking pieces of their kill away with them."

Mikhail Tiyunov, a scientist in the region, said it was the first he had ever heard of such an attack.

While squirrels without sources of protein might attack birds' nests, he said, the idea of them chewing at a dog to death was "absurd".

"If it really happened, things must be pretty bad in our forests," he added.

I want feel sorry for that poor dog - but there is a sick sense of satisfaction in rooting for the victims of canine oppression... I've been there myself.
