LIMESTONE CO., Ala. (WAFF) - A Limestone County man who made national headlines for owning an alleged “attack squirrel” appeared in court on Monday.

Mickey Paulk was set to have a bench trial, which is a trial by a judge instead of a jury. That trial was continued until the end of February because Paulk’s attorney was not present in court.

When Limestone County deputies initially tried to arrest Paulk on gun and drug charges, they found a squirrel, allegedly on meth, trained to attack visitors.
