KATY, Texas (AP) — A Houston-area woman has been treated for hand and back injuries after being attacked by her neighbor’s not-so-friendly pet squirrel that got loose.

KPRC-TV (http://bit.ly/1oerbTd ) reported Tuesday that Elizabeth Orzechowska (or-zuk-HOW’-skuh) of Katy spent hours at a hospital getting stitches.

The victim says she was unloading groceries from her car in her driveway when she felt something pounce, crawl up her leg and run up her back. She was treated for bites and scratches.

No charges were immediately filed over the attack blamed on the year-old squirrel named B.B., which apparently fled from its owner and headed for the neighbor.

KPRC reports the owner, who could face fines for unlawfully keeping a pet squirrel, set the rodent free following the attack amid the possibility of the animal being euthanized.
