Alabama man accused of feeding meth to ‘attack squirrel’ faces new charges
The Alabama man who has denied allegations that he fed meth to an attack squirrel at his home will reportedly face additional charges—delaying his trial.
Mickey Joel Paulk, 39, was scheduled to appear in court next week to face charges of possession of a wild animal, stolen property and possession of a weapon by a felon after his initial arrest in June 2019, AL.com reported.

The bizarre case started in 2019, when deputies raided his Athens home and said they found meth, ammunition and body armor. The paper reported that they also claimed to have found the squirrel and released it into the wild. Limestone County deputies said they were told that Paulk fed the animal meth but said there was no safe way to test the animal, the report said.
Paulk was not home during the raid. Ronnie Reynolds, who was allegedly inside the home at the time, was arrested and charged with possession of a controlled substance, possession of drug paraphernalia and loitering at a known drug house, WBRC reported.
