Man Mobbed by Squirrels


Different groups of animals go by different names: a pride of lions, a herd of cows, a pack of wolves, a murder of crows.  But what do you call a group of squirrels?

Watch this video by my friend (and fellow blogger and animal lover) Jeromie that shows him nearly mobbed by an oddly dense concentration of squirrels at a park.  What would you call them? 

Here's what Jeromie had to say (facetiously) about the encounter on Facebook:

"It kinda looked spooky when that albino one was just sitting right there in the middle ... I felt like I needed to acknowledge him so he wouldn't leap over and bite through my eye socket."

They're coming for you, Jeromie!
