A squirrel, supposedly on meth, trained to attack visitors is what the Limestone County investigators walked into while serving a warrant on Monday morning. Investigators were looking for 35-year-old Mickey Paulk who has warrants out for possession of a firearm, possession of a controlled substance and possession of paraphernalia.


Authorities tell news sources that Paulk says he held the squirrel captive and used it as an attack squirrel. They also say he was feeding it meth to keep it aggressive.

When deputies and investigators attempted to serve the warrant Monday, they describe the scenario as one-of-a-kind. While Paulk wasn’t in the home at the time, deputies did arrest 37-year-old Ronnie Reynolds of Ardmore.


Reynolds is charged with possession of a controlled substance, possession of drug paraphernalia, and loitering at a known drug house. He was released from the Limestone County Jail on $4,000 bond. After Reynolds was arrested, the deputies had to decide what to do with the supposed ‘drugged’ squirrel. Limestone County Public Information Officer, Stephen Young, says no one wanted to get close to the squirrel’s cage. Authorities remain on the lookout for Mickey Paulk.
