I will never set foot in Victoria Park again


Passers-by were reportedly too late to stop the attack by the black squirrels . . . which reportedly lasted about a minute.

They are said to have scampered off at the sight of humans, some carrying pieces of flesh.
. . .
"The little beasts are agitated because they have nothing to eat," [a man] said.
B-b-b but they're so cute when they walk up and beg for French fries . . .

I once had to beat back a small army of squirrels in Queen's Park who were trying to carry away Brutus. He hasn't been the same since.

You may have confused a band of homeless persons for an army of squirrels. The recognition of native Toronto fauna often requires a fieldbook.

A pine cone shortage may have led the squirrels to seek other food sources, although scientists are sceptical.

Likely the pine cones were eaten by starving humans, unless the ghost of Stalin has invaded the squirrel population.

Good God, you made me lose my appetite! For at least a month...
