Florida family's SUV damaged by car-eating squirrel

Posted: Updated:

A Florida family living in fear that they were being targeted by vandals discovered that the culprit has quite an appetite for destruction.

On Sunday morning, Nora Ziegler spotted something on her SUV.  It was a 6-inch hole that looked cut out above her wheel well.  She called deputies.

"They asked me if I had any enemies, I said no," said Ziegler.

Later that day, a second problem.  She found another hole, slightly larger above the rear left wheel.

"We called the police twice and the police came out and said they had never seen anything like that before," said Taylor Ziegler, Nora's daughter.

There were two gouges above the wheels.  The family was puzzled and nervous.  With five cars outside, why was the SUV the only one with any damage?

"The police told me someone is coming after me," said Nora.

The culprit? A squirrel the Zieglers have aptly nicknamed "Munchy."
