Detroit : A 45-year-old woman, identified as Janice Smith, has been arrested by the Detroit Police Department for allegedly training squirrels to attack her ex borfriend.

51-year old James Robinson, the vicitm, was recently attacked by squirrels for over a dozen time in last one month.

He also recieved several serious injuries in the attack, including loss of two fingers and one testicle, bitten off by his attackers.

James was completely clue less over the attacks until he once found his ex-girlfriend, a former circus animal trainer, cheering the squirrels during the attack.

A web media report quotes James, “She was partially hidden behind some bushes, but I could clearly see her and hear her. She was yelling orders at the squirrels and telling them to attack me." 

Soon after realising threat to his life, he filed a police complaint against his ex-girlfriend Janice Smith.

Taking a note, cops paid a visit to Ms Smith's house and found several cages with over two dozen of squirrels. They also took in custody two training dummies with pictures of Mr Robinson taped over their faces.

Detroit Police Chief James Craig confirmed that Janice Smith had admitted that she was responsible for the attacks and confessed her strange plot.

“Ms. Smith confessed to capturing and training squirrels to harass and attack her ex-boyfriend. She used to train lions for a circus, so it was easy for her to make the animals do as she wanted. She said she hoped to raise an army of up to 50 or 100 animals.”

Janice Smith has now been booked under variety of criminal charges linked to criminal harassment and using animals as weapons.

She will now be asked to go for a psychological evaluation; on being found mentally fit she is likely to face imprisonment for 65 years.
