Woman flees 'crazed' chipmunk attack http://www.digitalspy.co.uk/odd/a168064/woman-flees-crazed-chipmunk-attack.html Quote"" A US woman fled from a Siberian chipmunk and later claimed that the mammal attempted to injure her, it has emerged. According to The Sun, 30-year-old Muriel Long ran to a neighbour's home in Washington DC after the animal tried to slash at her. Long said: "It looked crazed. It meant to do me damage." It has been claimed that a number of similar chipmunks are on the loose in Britain after 30 escaped from Wellington Country Park on the Hampshire-Berkshire border four years ago. At the time, a spokeswoman for the Department of Environment, Food and Rural Affairs said: "Anything that enters into the English wild can upset the delicate ecosystem. "They are wanted: dead or alive." .
