This guy must have been nuts to try to take a selfie with a feisty squirrel.
The victim of a squirrel attack that was (thankfully) captured on camera prefers to stay anonymous, but he told BuzzFeed what led to this sequence of events.
Story continues after squirrel attack...
"I approached it making a clicking noise with my tongue; phone drawn,” he said. “When I got close enough, the squirrel actually tried grabbing my phone. I shook it off, then snapped this photo.”
But then the squirrel got its revenge.
He said his mom took that last photo.
Lucky for him, squirrels seldom carry rabies.
Remember kids: Respect nature.
CORRECTION: A previous version of this story said squirrels don't carry rabies.
