This is no exaggeration or falsification of the truth.

Today I took a break from work to go to the local farmers market that is in my area. I bought a big bag of the super fresh salt free additive free dried almonds.

I got home. Got out of my car with the bag in my hand. And start walking. And this squirrel darts out in front of me. Literally stopping in the path. I stood there for a second and he went into a dead run straight at me. I didn't know what to do or if he was rabid or something so I started to run . . . and the little thing started sprinting at me. I was in a foot race for a second and every time I stopped to look he would be right there. And if I stopped he would run even faster.

Was nuts. I tossed him a handful of almonds and he finally stopped.

I have never seen this behavior from a little tree squirrel.

Has this kind of thing ever happened to you?

I tried to throw some peanuts

I tried to throw some peanuts out the door to a squirrel today and he tried to come in the house. Is that against the laws of nature and instinct? Party

If he's not afraid of people

If he's not afraid of people and expects to get food from them, you've just verified that for him by throwing the food at him.

Good thing this wasn't a bear.

I'm no expert, but I fake one on teh Internets
