    This worries me though. Squirrels have been known to attack people living in Virginia, and they usually target kids. If enough people feed them that they aren't constantly after food, they may act like this. But, who is to say that once the food supply stops that they wont begin harassing people and clawing at babies for food?

    OMG! I can already picture an army of bipedal evil squirrel overlords uplifted and united in taking the last food out of our hands! World hunger, World War III, humans are enslaved and are under the heel of an evil master squirrel race!

    Be careful dude. When I was much younger and apparently knew no better I tried to feed a mature tame one in a tree and it just about took my finger off. Seriously. A guy at my work's son took care of one after Hurricane Irene that was that small. Their cuddly and all like a cat until they mature. Then, like a wood chipper that will cause a bad week or hand.

    Well I was careful and like a real gentleman let my significant other pet it first. JK! Don't worry fellow CPers, I don't usually go petting and hand-feeding squirrels regularly. This was one time only event. And now being thoroughly spooked by your replies, I see the error of my ways and will avoid these evil critters at all cost!

    When I was driving through central Oregon last year I went to a cave that had some friendly Golden-mantled Ground Squirrels. I actually had a bit of fun feeding them Cheez-its and patting them on the head. Feeding the squirrels in Golden Gate Park in San Francisco is also really amusing. I don't really think there is much danger from squirrels in North America, besides prairie dogs (whose fleas can carry the plague). I've caught plenty of moles and nearly caught a possum last year too, and I'm still alive...
