Several people in the Lake Vista neighborhood in New Orleans have reported they've been victimized recently in bizarre squirrel attacks, according to a WWL-TV report.

Since last Sunday at least six people said they've had squirrels assault them, with one man saying a squirrel climbed on his back then started biting and scratching the animal after he hurled it off him.

The pastor at nearby St. Pius Catholic Church also confirms two women were attacked in his parking lot after Sunday mass.

On Wednesday, New Orleans Mosquito and Rodent control captured three of the aggressive squirrels.

The report said the state veterinarian has agreed to test them for rabies.
