Please be advised that an Aveda employee was bitten
multiple times by a squirrel last evening near the south entrance to the
manufacturing facility as she was walking on the sidewalk. The employee received
a number of bites which required medical care at a hospital. Animal control was
unable to capture the squirrel last night and the Facility and Security Teams
are currently attempting to locate the squirrel so that it may be captured.
The squirrel was observed as behaving abnormally by a number of
employees last night after the incident and showed no fear of people. Please be
aware of any squirrels that you may come into contact with at the facility that
approach you as the squirrel gave no warning. The Child’s Garden has been
advised of the incident and children will not be playing on the playground
Additional information on the status of the squirrel will be
issued to employees when it becomes available.
Then this morning, this notice was issued:
The squirrel that attacked an employee last evening has
been captured and is no longer a threat.
Rather ominous wording, wouldn’t you say? Let’s hope this is the last of the attacks for awhile.
Until the squirrels are able to mobilize a full-on assault…
