LIMESTONE COUNTY, Ala. (WGHP) -- The Limestone County Sheriffs Office is still looking for a man after a drug bust involving a squirrel.

Mickey Paulk, 35, is wanted for possession of a controlled substance and drug paraphernalia. Deputies also believe he is illegally in possession of a firearm.

When authorities executed a search warrant at an apartment, they say they found meth, drug paraphernalia, body armor, and a caged squirrel. Ronnie Reynolds, 37, was arrested during the search.

Sources told the sheriff's office that Paulk fed the squirrel meth to help keep it aggressive and trained it to attack people.

Animal control officials were called to retrieve the squirrel but since there wasn't a safe way to test it for meth they released the squirrel into the wild, according to WHNT.

On Tuesday, Paulk posted a video on Facebook to dispute the claims from the Limestone County Sheriff's Office.

Paulk claims he doesn't live in the home deputies searched, and also addresses the idea of his apparent pet squirrel being on meth.

“He’s not a trained attack squirrel…" Paulk says in the video. "And he’s not on meth I’m pretty sure. Better not find out he’s on meth, anyway.”

He is with a squirrel in the video, and claims that it was the squirrel released by officials.

In the video, Paulk also tries to dispute the warrant charges against him. But police say this isn't the first time they’ve dealt with Paulk, and they’re not concerned about his public comments.
