The Boy Who Cried Squirrel

Monkey dead from bubonic plague in Denver
DENVER (Reuters) - A Denver Zoo monkey has died of bubonic plague, apparently after eating a squirrel stricken with the disease, Colorado health and zoo officials said on Monday.

Five squirrels and a rabbit found dead on zoo grounds tested positive for the flea-borne disease in recent weeks, Denver Zoo spokeswoman Ana Bowie said.

I'm telling you, I'm gonna start doing some research in the Book of Revelation and find some kind of reference to squirrels in end-time prophecy. I think the beast is going to turn out to be a squirrel.

Amazingly, having lived in Colorado Springs for a few years, they actually quarantine Manitou Springs EVERY year for the plague. Seems those pesky terrorist squirrels give it to the cats! Talk about seeking inside help.
