Alabama cops rescue methed-out attack squirrel during bust
ATHENS ALABAMA — Cops carrying out a drug bust in Alabama on Monday found not only a bunch of Breaking Bad and ammo on the property, but also an 'attack squirrel.'
According to AL.com, deputies found the bushy-tailed critter inside a cage.
They'd been informed prior to the raid that the animal was being fed speed to keep it aggressive.
The Sheriff said in a press release that there was no way to safely test the little rascal for meth, so officers followed advice from state conservation officials and released it in a nearby wooded area.
A man on the property was arrested on drug charges, but the actual resident, 35-year-old Mickey Paulk, wasn't home during the search.
He's still on the lam, with outstanding warrants charging him for possession of a controlled substance, possession of drug paraphernalia, and possession of firearms.
On Tuesday, Paulk came out on Facebook Live to deny the attack squirrel charges, saying he never fed it ice since it would've been fatal.
He also appeared in the video petting a squirrel, claiming it's the same one deputies released.
The cops say they can't really confirm this, but if a man can have one squirrel, he sure as heck can have two, maybe more, so who knows?
