I think I'm going to take up writing scripts for horror movies. And my first one will be based on this real life story (After all aren't the best horror films based on reality?)
From Yahoo UK news:
"A pack of Russian black squirrels is reported to have piled into a dog mob-handed, bitten it to death and then eviscerated the unfortunate animal after it ill-advisedly barked at them, the BBC reports.
That, at least, is according to journo Anastasia Trubitsina who told Komsomolskaya Pravda: "They literally gutted the dog," before adding that the canicidal tree rats scattered when they caught sight of some people. Chillingly, according to the three witnesses to the outrage, some were "carrying bits of flesh".
Locals in the town of Lazo attribute the savagery to a lack of pine cones. One said: "The little beasts are agitated because they have nothing to eat."
mmmhmmm I can see it now a whole bunch of killers squirrels running all over people and eating their flesh... that's enough to make anyone's skin crawl.
