Having performed squirrel removal in Chicago for years, we know how much damage an aggressive squirrel can cause to your property. But still, even this incident is a new one to us.
In a blatant act of aggression, the Chicago squirrel mafia placed a hit on Chicago Alderman Howard B. Brookins Jr.
On November 13, 2016, alderman Brookins was enjoying a recreational bike ride along the Cal-Sag trail when he was jumped by the squirrel mafia hit man.
The squirrel laid in wait for Brookins to ride by and then threw himself into the bicycle wheel spokes, causing the victim to be thrown head first over his handle bars at a high rate of speed.
The victim received a fractured skull, broken nose and had several teeth knocked out. The perpetrator was killed in the attack but not before seriously injuring the alderman.
Why did the squirrel mafia order the hit?
The reasons for the hit on alderman Brookins was immediately apparent to his colleagues and followers of Chicago politics.
Howard was a well known outspoken critic of the Chicago squirrel mafia and their destructive property crimes.
Only the month before, Brookins had attacked the squirrels at a city council meeting, saying that “aggressive squirrels were undermining the effort to overhaul the city’s trash carts, (reported the Chicago Sun Times). The squirrels were gnawing through the garbage cart lids at a cost of $300,000 to the city.”
Little did he know that the Chicago squirrel mafia would not tolerate this attack on their campaign of destruction across Chicago and it’s suburbs. Squirrels are ruthless though.
