Officer pepper sprays baby squirrel as students beg him not to
Outraged students at Kimbrough Middle School begged an officer not to pepper spray a baby squirrel in a video that was uploaded to YouTube this week.
“No!” they shouted. “Don’t spray him!”
“I’m going to cry!”
“Sgt. Wes Talley said the officer stood between a group of students and the animal because he thought it may have been rabid,” myfoxny.com reported.
It wasn’t clear why the students weren’t just moved away from the squirrel.
The animal was taken to a shelter and later released.
