Don't worry - there's nothing gory in this story. It's quite funny. Look closely at the pictures. Apparently the black lab came upon a baby squirrel - but mama squirrel was looking on from above.
I'd love to give credit to the photographer but unfortunately I don't know who it is.
LAB SPIES BABY SQUIRREL!
Look between the dogs front paws. See the baby squirrel there. I don't think the dog was intent on doing harm or there would barely have been time to take this picture.
But look in the tree. See Mama squirrel looking on. She's not too happy about this situation.
MAMA SQUIRREL ATTACKS!
Ahhh!!! Mama's had enough. She attacks the dog. Look closely under Mama's tail. Baby squirrel is making his escape.
BABY MAKES A BREAK FOR IT!
And while Mama continues the attack baby squirrel has time to make a break for it and get completely away.
THE LAB IS DUMBFOUNDED!
This picture cracks me up. Clearly Mama is consoling the baby half way up the tree. All is well. Both appear to have escaped unharmed.
But look at the dog. Doesn't that look on his face seem to be say "what just happened here - did I get my butt kicked by a squirrel!!!"
