Brooklyn ain’t afraid of no squirrel.
Prospect Park is fearless in the face of reports of an aggressive, “possibly rabid” squirrel — with many parkgoers asserting Saturday that they’d give the cretinous critter a swift boot to the nuts.
“I would kick it and kill it,” swore Lakendra Tookes as she took her Chihuahua, Savannah, for a walk.
“I’m not gonna sit there and be a victim of some squirrel,” said Tookes, a 30-something publicist from Crown Heights.
Even her pint-sized pooch — a Brooklyn pup, after all — would win a squirrel fight, she insisted:
“Between me and my dog, we could take the squirrel.”
Carlos Nieves, 49, agreed that fancy footwork was all it would take to outfox a snarling squirrel.
“I’d pick up my [fishing] gear and I would stomp on it,” said Nieves, a Sheepshead Bay-based electrician.
“I have a big foot,” he noted.
City Health Department officials say five people were bitten by a squirrel in Prospect Park between Tuesday and Thursday of last week — including a 7-year-old girl.
