Squirrel roughs up Iraq veteran in park
Frank Garren is tough guy. The 6-foot, 4-inch former Army sergeant was awarded a Purple Heart after surviving a roadside bomb while deployed in Iraq in 2004. He knows about combat and quick reactions.
“You might expect a mugging in the park, but not to be attacked by a tree rodent,” the 34-year-old Springfield resident said Monday. “I never thought a squirrel could kick my ass.”
The couple said his girlfriend, Amy Stone was “rolling on the ground laughing” until she realized Garren was bleeding.
Let me guess, "it had sharp pointy teeth?"
If your girlfriend is rolling on the ground laughing at you after you get attacked by a squirrel, marry her, it doesn't get any better than that.
Let me quickly look for stories of Marines getting pwned by tree rodents....nope not a one.
Okay, okay, nothing to see here, move on.
