Squirrel attacks are on the rise in Queens, New York.
In recent days, multiple attacks have been reported in Rego Park in the city, according to FOX 5 New York.
Speaking about the situation, Vinati Singh said: “They have been randomly attacking people – attacking is anywhere from jumping onto them to scratching and biting aggressively.
“We don’t know why it’s happening.”
Micheline Frederick, 56, was recently attacked by one of the squirrels.
Micheline told the New York Post newspaper: “The squirrel didn’t care, it just wanted something – it wanted blood. For a few days afterwards I would come out with a shovel, just in case, looking around.”
