Squirrels Reported To Be Aggressive

New York — Something seems to have happened in the squirrels in Rego Park, Queens. In the past several weeks, some people have reported to WCBS-TV that they were attacked by a squirrel.

Micheline Frederick pointed to a bruise on her wrist where she said the squirrel landed on her and then sank its teeth into her fingers and hand.
“We’re wrestling in the snow and there’s blood everywhere and my fingers getting chewed and it won’t let go,” Frederick said. “Eventually, it just stopped and there I was a big bloody mess.”
A photo Frederick says she took after the attack shows a snowy pathway covered in blood.
“This was an MMA cage match! And I lost!” she added.

It is not clear yet what caused these squirrels to be aggressive.

Well, what do you think?

Given the time of year, squirrels should be hibernating in New York. The first question should be,"What woke them up?" Small mammals store just enough energy to wake up from hibernation. They are ravenously hungry afterwards. Since there would be little or no food, I surmise this behavior is caused by being hangry.

Could be a neuro virus like rabies. Could be a particular season they're aggressive, like the time for mating or foraging. Lots of factors there.
