KATY, TX- A squirrel on the attack!

Just outside of Houston, a woman says her neighbor’s pet squirrel attacked her when she was unloading groceries. Elizabeth Orzechowska was left with stitches, bruises, and bite marks from BB — a tiny rodent, who evidentially packs a punch.

Orzchowska says the dramatic attack took her completely by surprise and she almost lost the tip of her finger.

The squirrel’s owner feels pretty bad and offered to pay the Texas mom’s medical bills.

She also could be in trouble with the law. According to the local game warden, keeping a squirrel as a pet is illegal in Texas.

The owner says she’s released BB — the small but mighty rodent — back into the wild.
