Squirrels on Crack?
So i found this article about how squirrels in London are supposedly becoming addicted to crack.
The article claims:
"Crack squirrels are a recognised phenomena in the US. They are known to live in parks frequented by addicts in New York and Washington DC. The squirrels have attacked park visitors in their frenzied search for their next fix."
Okay, am I just not hanging out in the right crack parks or what? I have never seen a crack-addicted squirrel before or even heard of one. A quick google search just revealed more London sources of the same article and even one from the non-news-spinning-folk at Fox News , but nothing on the actual "recognised phenomena" in the US.
The article also claims:
"It was ill-looking and its eyes looked bloodshot but it kept on desperately digging. It was almost as if it was trying to find hidden crack rocks."
Now I ask you, how can you tell if a squirrel's eyes are bloodshot?
Can anyone find a source to confirm crack addicted squirrels in DC???
(oh here's some news from a more reputable source - Muhammad Ali thinks Bush is crazy)
