Associated Press ATHENS, Ala. — An Alabama man accused of feeding methamphetamine to what authorities called an "attack squirrel" is being charged with a state wildlife offense. Court records show 35-year-old Mickey Joel Paulk is now charged with illegal possession of wildlife. Paulk hasn't denied having a pet squirrel, which is illegal under state law. But he has denied police allegations that he fed meth to the squirrel to make it aggressive. Officers encountered the animal during a raid at an apartment. Paulk later told The Associated Press he had the squirrel since it was a baby and would never give it drugs. Limestone County sheriff's officers arrested Paulk last week following a chase in which he allegedly rammed an investigator's vehicle. He faces illegal gun possession and other charges.
