Indoor pet squirrel prevents burglary attempt in Idaho

The AP recently featured this great article of how this deadly attack squirrel attacked a burglar

MERIDIAN, Idaho — A pet squirrel named Joey prevented a burglary attempt in Idaho last week by scratching the teen suspect when he tried to break into a gun safe, police said.

The unidentified teenager told officers that the squirrel’s attack “scared him, obviously, because he wasn’t expecting to have, you know, a squirrel come flying out of nowhere at him,” said Officer Ashley Turner of the police department in Meridian, a Boise suburb. “So basically he said he took what he could and left as fast as he could.”

The squirrel’s owner, Adam Pearl, said Joey has lived in his house for about six months after he was found in a flower garden by a friend’s daughter when he was about a week old.

He said Joey’s eyes were still closed, and they set an alarm to feed him every two hours.

“His temperament is kind of like a cat,” Pearl said. “When he wants attention, he’ll run up to you and climb up your leg.”

Joey eats nuts and greens, and spinach is his favorite. He buries some of the nuts in houseplants inside Pearl’s house and uses a litterbox.

“He trained himself,” Pearl said.

Joey’s reward for his vigilance were Whoppers, the squirrel’s favorite candy.

Pearl had planned to release Joey into his backyard in the spring.

“But now, I don’t know,” he said. “I’m kind of torn.”

Possible RMFC / Rainfurrest Connection

Call this just an observation, but given recent events namely RMFC. Why is it no one will ever talk about what happened at the last Rainfurrest. I finally found someone who admits they were there, as they have photos. But barely say a word about it, and their photos are just crowd shots. Other than I missed all the problems, is really all they had to say. I just don’t get it, is what happened there was far worse than what happened at RMFC? I don’t know no one will even admit they were there. Like the 5 who gave me info for an article I did on my blog. None of them wanted their names even mentioned…ever. I know all the chatter of RMFC and that statement that was made. But I can not help but wonder what happened at Rainfurrest was far worse? I don’t know, nobody wants to talk about it.
