Narcotics Officers Encounter 'Meth-Fueled Attack Squirrel'

During Raid When executing raids on homes of suspected drug dealers, law enforcement authorities need to be prepared for physical altercations, gunfire and oftentimes vicious guard dogs. But narcotics investigators in Alabama have come across something they never have before: a "meth-fueled attack squirrel." The ferocious rodent was discovered Monday during a search of a Limestone County home, police say. Although the man they were after wasn't home, they did find the squirrel and 37-year-old Ronnie Reynolds. He told officers the homeowner, 35-year-old Mickey Paulk, regularly fed the critter meth to "keep him aggressive." Fortunately for officers, the squirrel was caged at the time of the raid. Officers arrested Reynolds and charged him with possession of a controlled substance, possession of drug paraphernalia and loitering at a known drug house, according to police documents. They also issued an all-points-bulletin for Paulk, who's expected to face a number of felony charges. The squirrel, however, got off easy -- on the advice of the Alabama Department of Conservation, officers just set the squirrel free. Do you think it was a good idea to release the squirrel? Should Paulk also face animal cruelty charges?
