A squirrel bit an MTA worker's finger in the Bronx yesterday, sending her to the hospital.
The unidentified subway operator sustained the bite at around 4:30 p.m. yesterday, while on a staircase at the elevated Woodlawn 4 station in the Norwood section of the borough. "There were some squirrels about and she tried to shoo them away so one of them bit her on the finger," a source told the Daily News.
She was taken to Montefiore Medical Center for treatment.
Reached for comment, an MTA spokesperson said, "What can I tell you? A subway employee was bitten by a squirrel." It is unclear what happened to the aforementioned attacking squirrel.
