I've heard about individual cases at cemeteries in my area. Those places have good eating for squirrels. And some may be used to getting snacks from people.

Quite a few tame squirrels where I live - I occasionally feed them and have often found myself speculating what would happen if they went rogue - I imagine some sort of Hitchcock-ian mass squirrel attack scenario, mobbing folks and nipping them to death (think "The Birds" but with rodents). The little buggers are very fast and have sharp teeth. Now it looks like my worst fears have been realised ...

Some time, species recognition can go wrong. I would suggest someone climb into that tree to double check...

Obviously, cats couldn't let it go that easy to squirrels:

The cats are believed to have started the fires by switching on electric stoves, the department said. Cats can turn electric stoves on by jumping on touch-sensitive buttons -- and once overheated, the appliances can catch fire.

Beware
