Nuts! Rogue squirrels attacking New Yorkers in Queens

New York (AFP) – As 2020 comes to a close some New York residents can add another woe to the long list this year has wrought: vicious squirrels.

People living in the Rego Park neighbourhood of Queens have reported several squirrel attacks over the past month, with one woman needing emergency attention after a bite to the hand.

One resident told local media she leaves the house with pepper spray in case of encountering an aggressive squirrel or a pack, and others voiced fear for their children.
