On Monday June 17th, 2019, investigators from Limestone County Alabama walked into a bizarre situation. While conducting a search warrant of 35-year-old Mickey Paulk’s apartment, police seized illegally possessed meth, drug paraphernalia, body armor and apparently a trained attack squirrel. Prior to the search, police were informed that the “attack squirrel’ was kept inside and fed meth to keep it aggressive.

“It’s kind of incredulous when you first see it, you know. Somebody’s supposedly got a squirrel that’s an attack squirrel, and supposedly he’s feeding it meth to keep it aggressive. That’s something in 18 years of law enforcement I’ve never seen,” – Steven Young, a Limestone County Sheriff’s spokesperson said.

Police did not find Mickey Paulk on scene; however, they did arrest 37-year-old Ronnie Reynolds for possession of a controlled substance, possession of drug paraphernalia, and loitering at a known drug house. After completing their search they did in fact find a caged squirrel and called animal control to come on scene, who in turn contacted Alabama Game and Fish Division of the Department of Conservation.

Officials were told that it is illegal to own a wild animal in the state of Alabama and to release it back into the wild. Since there was no safe way to test the squirrel for meth, the county Sheriff’s released it back into the wild. The squirrel is safe at this time and unharmed. We don’t recommend keeping a wild animal as a pet nor train it as an attack animal.

Wild animals often carry diseases and are very difficult to domesticate

Mr. Paulk has since taken to social media with an explicit statement declining all allegations in this video. He includes that he did not feed the squirrel meth and that it could kill the squirrel. At this time Mickey Paulk is still being sought after by the Limestone County Sheriff’s office. The Sheriff’s office said that Mr. Paulk is not considered to be dangerous but they recommended to not approach him and to call their office with any information at 256-232-0111.
