This is a question When animals attack...

I once, accidentally, punched a racoon.

It had wandered into my tent, I was half asleep and thought it was a mate pratting around. There was a yelp and then all hell broke loose.

What have you been attacked by?

plus fire
sadly not personally, though I would have loved to see this. here are both long and short, one's good for ice breaking:

short version:
my friend lit a fire and got attacked by a flaming screaming squirrel.

long version:
New York summers get 'quite hot'. During a particularly hot one, my friend was seeing an Irish guy who lived in an apartment in the Village. He and his flatmates had gone camping and brought back firewood for winter, not realising this is very not allowed. My friend told them this, they panicked. They decided to light a fire and burn the wood in the fireplace to remove the evidence of said naughty deed.

It being a stupid hot day, it gets even hotter in the apartment, especially when the smoke starts filling the apartment instead of going up the chimney. They open the window. The neighbours see the smoke and call 911. Visibility is low, and the place is boiling.

Cue a screaming noise from the fireplace.

My friend turns to look as the others run out of the room.

To see a flaming squirrel, screeching, running towards her.

She dodges it, only to watch it begin running circuits around the room trailing smoke and fire in the manner of a cartoon.

After putting it out and out of its misery with the broom, the fire services arrive to deal with their first ever case of squirrel fire damage. It's usually racoons.

I will never apologise for length when its girth that really matters.
