Baby squirrel pepper sprayed by cop

(CNEWS)   A YouTube video of a Texas police officer using pepper spray on a baby squirrel has sparked outrage.

Distressed kids from Kimbrough Middle School in Mesquite are heard on the student-recorded clip telling the uniformed officer to stop spraying the tiny animal.

The squirrel had apparently chased students around the school grounds Wednesday afternoon.

Sgt. Wes Talley, of the Mesquite Police Department, told Fox News the animal was suspected of having rabies and had tried several times to scare the squirrel away from the students.

The officer then used pepper spray to protect the children, Talley said.

As of Sunday, the 36 second video had 221,000 views.

Animal control officers treated the squirrel, and released it back into the wild the following day.
