TALLAHASSEE, Fla., May 1 (UPI) -- A man tried to take a selfie with a squirrel and the squirrel attacked him, leading to viral pictures on Reddit.

Reddit user Supplenupple, who wished to remain anonymous for obvious reasons, said he was hiking in Florida when he came across a seemingly friendly squirrel and decided to take a selfie with the critter. It turns out the squirrel did not approve of having its picture taken and attacked him.

"I approached it making a clicking noise with my tongue; phone drawn," he told BuzzFeed. "When I got close enough, the squirrel actually tried grabbing my phone. I shook it off, then snapped this photo."

That is when everything went wrong.

"Next thing I knew, the squirrel was on my shoulder, then under my shirt, and then hanging off my back!" he said. "This photo is courtesy of my mom, who collapsed laughing shortly after."

He added that no rabies shot was necessary.
