City Warns of Aggressive Squirrel

At least five people have been bitten by a squirrel in Prospect Park and now those people are being urged to see a doctor.

Squirrels rarely have rabies, but the city’s Health Department is concerned this specific squirrel may be infected with the disease because of its “aggressive behavior.”  All five attacks happened near the park’s entrance at Parkside and Ocean Avenues.

Among those attacked by the squirrel was a 7-year-old girl.

The Health Department is also reminding people not to feed the squirrel.
