Pet Squirrel Attack Near Houston

Posted: Updated:

(KCEN) -- A woman's pet squirrel escaped and attacked her neighbor near Houston.

Now, the squirrel's owner is apologizing but that may not be enough.

Elizabeth Orzechowska almost lost the tip of her finger. She also has eleven stitches in her other hand and lots of scratches, bruising and bite marks.

She says she was unloading groceries from her car, and suddenly she felt something jump on her.

"When I pull her from my neck she launched to my hand," Elizabeth Orzechowska said. "I had never seen that much blood before."

It was her neighbor's pet squirrel, BB. It only weighs a couple of pounds but has very sharp teeth.

The squirrel is a year old and got away from its owner.

Now, that owner is facing fines from Harris County Animal Control officers.

The game warden says keeping a squirrel as a pet is against the law in Texas.

That's why the owner says she has released BB into the wild.
