Rabid or not, if you think that squirrel posed any threat to the policeman or anyone else in that circumstance, threat that would be eliminated by pepper spraying the animal, then I don't know what to say to you.

Reports show that the squirrel had a history of civil disobedience.




How did it even get to a point where there is a police officer handling a situation with a squirrel? Are there no adults around?

I was at the Grand Canyon a few months ago and one of the rangers said the top reasons for visits to the emergency room there were dehydration and squirrel bites. Squirrels are nasty rodents, basically rats with bushy tails.

Wow. When I first saw the thread title, I thought it was a parody of the cop shooting that dog.

I can't believe this actually happened. We've had a squirrel get into our house and didn't use no damn pepper spray to "neutralize" it.

I had a family of them get into my attic a few years ago. I tried trapping them and letting them go (my wife's idea) in the woods a few miles away. I patched the hole where they got in with a piece of aluminum siding. They returned a few days later and actually chewed through the aluminum to get in. I did some research and found out they can follow their scent from 20 miles away. So this time I trapped them again and returned them to the woods. Let's just say that they were a little less active than the first time.

Squirrels are hardcore, don't fukk with them. Surprised the officer took matters into his own hands instead of calling in a SWAT unit as back up. Shit could've easily escalated into a tragedy.

When I was a kid we had the park down the street from us closed for 6 months or so because the squirrels there had been infested by fleas that carried the plague.

Don't squirrels just run away after you flinch at em and stomp your feet? I've never encountered such a bold squirrel. Must have truly been hopped up on something. Officer didn't wanna risk it having that crackhead strength.

Why is it that before I open a link to a video where someone dies I already know it's going to be from Russia?

Because the only time Russians ever get their cameras out is when somebody is getting killed.

How embarrassing we've created a generation of children that are afraid of a squirrel.

Stomp your foot down loudly or make a quick movement towards the squirrel. It will get scared and run away. No need to spray the thing.
