Tit for Tat: Politician Who Criticized Squirrels Gets Hospitalized By Squirrel

41

Possibly Howard Brookins Jr. will reconsider before he scrutinizes squirrels once more.

In October, the council member for Chicago’s 21st ward went on an open tirade about “forceful squirrels,” complaining that the fuzzy critters continued eating through the city-provided refuse jars.

Be that as it may, Brookins had no clue exactly how “forceful” squirrels could be. On Nov. 13, the councilman ended up in the clinic with a skull crack after a squirrel jumped into the way of Brookins’ bicycle, wrapping itself in the spokes and making him flip over the handlebars, as indicated by the media reports.

“I can think about no other explanation for this present squirrel’s activities than that it resembled a suicide aircraft, getting revenge,” he told the media.

A few outlets, secured the episode however just alluded to it as an “oddity mischance,” obviously hesitant to call radical squirrel psychological warfare by name.

Brookins posted about the mishap on Sunday to declare that he would be not able go to occasions soon as he was all the while recouping from his genuine wounds.

Tragically, it creates the impression that the squirrel did not survive the episode, in view of the photograph that Brookins posted.

The councilman has made the picture his Facebook cover photograph, as though to serve as a notice for squirrels who may attempt a similar thing.
