  • Officer pepper spray's baby squirrel; public outraged

    MESQUITE, Texas - A YouTube video of a police officer using pepper spray on a baby squirrel has sparked outrage in the city of Mesquite, Tx.

    A student recorded the incident. In the video, the officer is seen spraying the animal after it began chasing students around at Kimbrough Middle School.

    Students are heard begging the cop, reffered to as Officer Davis on the video, to stop with cries of "No!" and "Don't spray him!"

    Mesquite Police Department has defended the officer's actions.

    Sgt. Wes Talley said the officer stood between a group of students and the animal because he thought it may have been rabid.

    Talley said after several unsuccessful attempts to scare the squirrel away, the officer used his pepper spray on it to protect the welfare of the students.

    One parent questioned why the students weren't simply moved away from the squirrel.

    Two students told Fox 4 in Dallas that a school official had kicked the squirrel before the officer arrived. The district denied that ever happened.

    Animal control officers took the squirrel back to the shelter after the incident. It was cared for and released back into the wild, Talley said.


    I bet every one of those kids grows up to be a cop-hating PETA liberal...

        If we learned anything from the "Don't tase me bro!" video, we know that police don't change their gameplan because the people watching them suggest it.

        One parent questioned why the students weren't simply moved away from the squirrel.
        I can see it now. "Officer Davis grabbe my son by the shoulders in a harsh manner and told him he must move! He then interrogated my son as to why he wouldn't follow directions. He did all of this without notifying me, his legal guardian, first!

        Two students told Fox 4 in Dallas that a school official had kicked the squirrel before the officer arrived. The district denied that ever happened.
        Sounds like the officer saved the children's and the squirrel's life from the maniac teacher.

            Keep on mind the same pool of people who are complaining are the same ones who called 911 over a 'baby squirrel' in the first place.
