Squirrels are on the attack in New Orleans.  Residents in the Lake Vista neighborhood have reportedly been under attack and the city has taken action.

The city's rodent department says three squirrels have been caught and as many as six citizens have come forth with stories of being attacked.

WWL-TV reports that in one case two parishioners at St. Pius X Catholic Church were attacked by these aggressive squirrels too.

Traps were put out and that's how the aggressive pests were detained. Note, there could be more out there so if you happen to be in this area soon, be on the lookout.

It looks like New Orleans has another problem on its hands. Yikes.
