ITASCA, Ill. –– Authorities believe they have put an end to a squirrel's reign of terror.

They think a squirrel they killed last night is the one responsible for at least four attacks on people.

It was captured during a final attack. A man pulled it off his wife's shoulder as it was biting her. He threw it into a trap and called police.

Animal control officers killed the squirrel and are sending it to a state lab for testing.

The squirrel had a bald spot on its tail – just like the one described by the previous victims.
