Local legend: Bird-table Man
Self-styled joker Mike Madden wasn't laughing after an incident with an angry squirrel left him in a neck brace. The hapless Yorkshireman constructed a hat to attract bird life in the woodland near his Huddersfield home. Unfortunately the lure of fresh nuts proved too much for one squirrel who promptly launched himself at Mike, knocking him to the ground. Madden ended up with whiplash. "It wasn't funny at the time, I couldn't believe the pain", he quipped. Source: BBC News. Commissioned by Loaded.
