🕐 1 min read

DELTONA, Fla. (AP) — A squirrel attacked several people inside a senior center activity room, injuring at least three.

Multiple news outlets report that the attack happened Thursday at Sterling Court Gracious Retirement Living.

A 911 caller told dispatchers that the squirrel had gotten into the building and was jumping on people, biting them and scratching them. The caller said at least three people were bitten.

During the more than three-minute call, the animal was eventually tossed outside. An ambulance arrived to treat those who were injured.

WESH-TV reports that those hurt were “doing well” as of Thursday night.

It’s unclear if the squirrel was captured.
