Squirrel Attacks Customers Inside Brevard Co. Pharmacy

May 14, 2007

PORT ST. JOHN, Fla. -- Three people were attacked by a squirrel inside a Brevard County pharmacy. One person was bitten eight times.

The squirrel got into the CVS in Port St. John holding onto a customer's leg. Once inside, employees said, the squirrel went nuts.

The crazy story began when a customer was trying to walk into the store and the squirrel latched onto his ankle. He tried to shake it loose and it wouldn't let go. That's when the mayhem began inside the pharmacy.

He may be little, furry and some might think cute, but the squirrel was downright feisty. Even after attacking two customers and an employee, he took on the Animal Control officer.

The tiny terror hitchhiked into a CVS Pharmacy, latching onto a customer's shoe and refusing to let go.

"She was trying to get it out the door, but it wouldn't go anywhere. It just wanted to stay around her," said witness Carol Williams.

When another customer tried to help the woman, the squirrel set his eyes on him, grabbing hold of his leg, too. But it was a CVS employee who felt the squirrel's wrath when she stepped in and it attacked her.

"It jumped on her leg, bit her leg. It was on her back, biting her, scratching her on her back. Scratched up all over her arms," Williams said.

It bit the woman eight times.

Eventually, someone got a basket over it, which it tried to gnaw through. The only thing they could find to contain it were cases of Coke.

Even after it was caged, it still managed to show off with back flips and price tags stuck to its tail, evidence of the squirrelly behavior that sent one of his victims searching for medical attention. She was said to be doing fine.

The squirrel's fate has not been determined yet. Animal Control officers said they are considered low risk for rabies. They said it's not uncommon for squirrels to bite multiple times, particularly when they are scared, injured or sick.


They may appear to be cute and cuddly, but don't be fooled - they can be deadly - BE FOREWARNED!!!

I've had lunch with a squirrel once. I was tired, sitting on a park bench eating some McDonalds when a squirrel jumped up next to me. Gave it some french fries, and it sat with me until I finished. People walking by gave me some odd looks though.
The cake is a lie.

I have heard these stories about squirrels. At the college campus that I go to, then you can walk right beside squirrels and on occasion reach out and touch them and they won't flinch one bit, but when we were on a school camping trip one of the teachers with us got bit by a squirrel.
