Thanks to my friend Peter Alway for posting a link to this IFLScience! article on my Squirrels Are Evil And Are Taking Over The World FB Page earlier this month. According to legend, the squirrel have attacked and killed deer to eat its innards! "A disemboweled deer or domestic chicken with none of its flesh eaten is a sure sign of a squirrel kill."

Also see this Popular Science article (thanks to Irina Greenman for the link), which shared this photo:
