Squirrel goes wild at a Florida senior center, bites several people

A freaked-out squirrel jumped on and bit several people at a Florida senior living complex Thursday, according to reports.

A caller to 911 requesting medical assistance told the dispatcher that several people were left bleeding before the animal was tossed outside, the Orlando Sentinel reported.

“It’s jumping on people and biting them and scratching them so we need help”, the woman caller told the dispatcher, according to the paper.

Sheriff deputies told the paper the animal attacked someone outside the Sterling Court Apartments activity room in Deltona in the middle of the afternoon Thursday, the paper reported.

The squirrel latched on to that person who then ran inside. There the animal attacked others.

WKMG-TV Orlando obtained the 911 call.

“I don’t know if we need an ambulance, but we need some care for people here,” the caller is heard saying.

At one point the caller tells the dispatcher the squirrel bit at least 3 or 4 people and was then “tossed outside.”

The manager at the senior center did not want to comment, the station reported.
