Alas, poor Pumpy, I knew thee well!
Excellent spark, hale fellow and well met,
Now gone fore'er into the noodling dark.

MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif. -- An aggressive squirrel pounced on a 4-year-old boy in an attack last week in Cuesta Park in Mountain View, Calif. The attack happened as the boy's mother unwrapped a muffin during a picnic.
[Good thing it wasn’t a pumpkin; he might have lost his head.]
Mountain View Community Services Director David M. said that as many as six people have been bitten or scratched by squirrels since May, and that the attacks have become more ferocious in the last month.
