A dog pins down a baby squirrel - mama squirrel sees from the tree and leaps (literally) into action, and kicks the dog's ass.

β€œWhat the hell just happened? Did I just get my ass kicked by a squirrel?!?”


β€œSquirrel Girl is basically a Silver Age character in the modern age, and that makes her a fish out of water in a lot of ways. She likes being a superhero. She likes fighting crime. She doesn't sit around brooding in the darkness of her Squirrel Hole trying to figure out new ways to make crime pay.” β€” Ryan North
