I've heard of them, but they ARE rare...most squirrels just flee when humans come near...

But they are animals and have that instinct to defend if they feel threatened, so I'm sure being aggressive is not out of the question.
I wonder if they had a nest close by with babies in it and felt like it needed to be defended.

There are squirrels all over where I am, but I've never had an encounter like the one you mentioned .. Most of the time they will run if a person gets within 50 feet

These things are huge and are more like rats than your average red squirrel. I hope it wasn't one of these! That would be intense!
I've never heard of them attacking anyone before, but wise to have your daughter checked for rabies and other nasties.

We got it cornered, and you can guess the rest. It made a mad dash between us, my dad grabbed it, and it made a meal out of his thumb! I just yelled, "Throw it on the ground!" We were only about 6-8 feet over my neighbor's side yard, so the little darlin wasn't hurt.

Yeah, that's scary. Looks like a black squirrel too. I hadn't had much experience with them until I moved North that Year...they can be vicious if cornered.
