Pennsylvania letter carrier attacked by squirrel is taken to hospital
Barb Dougherty, 30, a U.S. Postal Service employee, said she was attacked and bitten Monday by a squirrel while delivering mail in Oil City, about 121 kilometres north of Pittsburgh.
"It was a freak thing. It was traumatic," Dougherty told the Derrick newspaper. "I saw it there on the porch, put the mail in the box and turned to walk away and it jumped on me."
The squirrel was killed with a BB gun and sent to a lab to be tested for rabies. cbc.ca
