    Default Squirrel mother goes nuts and attacks dog trying to eat her baby

    They have a bit of a reputation for a vicious streak, but this dog certainly got more than it bargained for after pouncing on a baby squirrel it found on the ground.
    Moments before the hapless baby would have been torn apart, these images show its mother appearing to leap off a nearby tree and attacking the surprised dog.

    Barking mad: The squirrel gets ready to leap off the tree and its terrified baby is pounced on by the dog
    Using its sharp teeth and claws, the squirrel tore into its canine opponent and distracted it so the baby could escape to freedom.

    It is unclear if the images have been edited, but the startled dog appears in considerable pain as the squirrel bites into its flank.
    The surprise assault gives the baby squirrel just enough time to climb back up the nearby tree before its mother is thrown clear and escapes from the dog.
    The baby squirrel appears to have fallen to the ground as it was being helped up the tree.

    Make it snappy: The plucky creature bites and claws the dog, allowing its baby to escape certain death

    That's my baby! The dog snarls in pain as the squirrel leaps in to attack it - and the baby makes a leap for the safety of the tree

    Spotting the helpless creature on the ground, the dog pounces and traps it
    underneath its front paws as it closes for the kill.
    But it appears to have underestimated its diminutive opponent, as the brave mother squirrel clearly has no intention of letting her baby become dinner and rushes to its aid by jumping on the dog's head.

    After the whirlwind attack the mother squirrel springs free of the dog and rushes her baby back up into the safety of the tree.
    The frustrated dog is left sitting forlornly at the base of the tree as its prey escapes into the upper branches.
    The images appeared on a website that was set up solely to promote them using Weebly, a website creation programme.

    I love a good rescue story where the small fry wins and everyone survives.

    Diva, I hear ya! As a teen, my next-door neighbor set out what would appear to be huge mouse traps...Idk anything about traps. Well, one squirrel was caught in the trap near my parents' fence, and struggled to be free. I felt sorry for the poor thing so I used a broom handle to let it go. No sooner than the squirrel was free, the little bastard bared its teeth and proceeded to attack me! lol! I ran back to my house. I guess the squirrel thought I had something to do with the traps.
    Rock the fuck on!

    Squirrels have brought down the high-tech NASDAQ stock market twice and were responsible for a spate of power outages at the University of Alabama.[11]

    Unlike the healthfulness of most game meat, the American Heart Association has found squirrels to be high in cholesterol.[20]

    Aw, what a good mommy.

    I never mess with a mother (except my own), I got between a deer and her baby once when I was out with my dog. I back away slowly and made sure they left before I continued.
