murder of park squirrels
A series of squirrel maulings in Greenwich Village has pit friends of the furry rodents against what they say are a pair of bloodthirsty pooches.
The clash in Washington Square Park has gotten so heated undercover Parks Enforcement officers are stalking the area to prevent another dogs-versus-squirrels showdown, officials said yesterday.
"There are lots of people in the park who care about the squirrels," said Vicki Puluso, who witnessed the aftermath of multiple attacks. "Even the chess guys and the drug dealers are outraged."
