When Your Only Tools Are a Gun and a Can Of Pepper Spray...

...you know there's going to be an ugly scene at the Dollar General (imagine that*).

MOUNTAIN CITY, TN (WBIR) - A Tennessee police officer has been fired after displaying heavy force in an attempt to rid a Dollar General Store of a squirrel. The incident occurred last Thursday in Mountain City, when according to police documents, now-former Officer Jody Putnam found himself at the right place at the right time. Or the wrong place at the wrong time. Documents state that Putnam happened to be inside the Dollar General Store at the same time employees noticed a squirrel. That's when Putnam sprang into action, discharging his firearm at the squirrel inside the store. Unsuccessful, he moved on to option 2: pepper spray.

It weren't pretty, friends and neighbors.

Squirrels. *laughs*

*private joke.

Once heard a retired police officer tell a story about trying to help a homeowner get a squirrel out of their house. It started with the gorgeous blond wife and went downhill from there. Involved falling out of the attic and setting the living room sofa on fire. I laughed so hard I cried.
