Squirrels gone wild in Glen Oaks
From Fox 5:
Aggressive squirrels seem to be taking over Glen Oaks Village in Queens, even taking up residence under the hood of Natasha Conklin's car.
This neighborhood does not have any alternate side of the street parking regulations, so residents can leave their cars parked in the same spot for days at a time. That makes it a perfect nesting spot for the creative critters.
One pesky squirrel even slipped through someone's window and ate a cookie.
Maintenance crews in Glen Oaks Village have been using humane squirrel traps to capture the squirrels, but they say they've only caught 30 and they need help from the Department of Health.
The Department of Health said it does not have a squirrel removal policy and the Glen Oaks Village development will have to contact a wildlife trapper for assistance.
