A Student at Kimbrough Middle School in Mesquite Texas captured this video of a police officer pepper spraying a baby squirrel that was behaving erratically. You know, those pesky things sometimes carry rabies.
An animal control officer was able to pick up the squirrel, wipe it off and return it to the wild.
Great police work, Lou! The Mesquite Police department is reviewing the case, which is probably code for “preparing for the onslaught of animal rights people”.
