Squirrels who regularly feast on culinary delights tossed out by upscale restaurants in New York City are starving now that restaurants have shut down.

Aggressive squirrels have been terrorizing and attacking New Yorkers for three weeks now. Residents say the squirrels are drawing blood.

Residents of a Queens neighborhood are ducking and running to avoid flying squirrels who jump on them and sink their teeth into them.

"We're wrestling in the snow and there's blood everywhere and my fingers getting chewed and it won't let go," Micheline Frederick tells WCBS-TV. "Eventually, it just stopped and there I was a big bloody mess."

Fredrick produced a photo that showed the bloody aftermath of the squirrel assault. "This was an MMA cage match and I lost!" she said.

Two other neighbors shared their own horrific tales of unprovoked squirrel attacks.

"These squirrels are aggressively going after people," Vinati Singh said.

The city's health department advised Queens residents to call a licensed trapper to deal with the pests. Small squirrels rarely test positive for rabies, according to the Centers for Disease Control.

Dogs are called man's best friend and some dog owners refer to their pets as members of the family. But unlike most humans, a dog has no qualms about eating their owners after death.
