WGNO Viewers Offer Other Explanation For Bulletproof Squirrel

Bulletproof Squirell Proves to be Quite a Survivor

Our story on a squirrel in the Covington area that appears to have a bullet lodged beneath its skin is a big attraction on our website.  Some of our viewers are suggesting the lump is not a bullet but perhaps a parasite instead.

Our original story included an interview with a veterinarian who said, yes, the squirrel could continue to live a normal life if it happened to catch a lucky break and the bullet didn’t hit any vital organs.

Some of our viewers also let us know that the lump could be from a worm parasite instead.

For now, there’s no word of any plans to trap the squirrel and find out for sure.
