Outside Kimbrough Middle School in Mesquite police officer Davis was pepper spraying a poor baby squirrel that managed to get into the school yard. The animals abuse was filmed by one of the students, and on the video tape you can hear how they are yelling and screaming at the police officer to have mercy with the baby squirrel. They were screaming: “No, no! Don’t spray it, please!”, etc. Of course the officer just continued to spray it. The police said that they thought it was dangerous for the students and that it maybe had rabies.
Luckily the Mesquite Animal Control came shortly after and saved the squirrel before they cleaned it and put it out in the wild again. Some of the upset parents of the students said that their children got a traumatic experience from seeing how a harmless animals is being abused and even kicked by someone who shouldn’t represent violence.
