A New England teen may want to think twice before trying to take a selfie with a squirrel after he was attacked for taking a photo.

Brian Genest, 17, says he just wanted to take a selfie with the furry creature while visiting a Florida park, but things didn't go as planned. Once the first flash went off, the squirrel went wild. He says the next thing he knew, the squirrel was on his shoulder and under his shirt.

Brian's mom who was standing by with her camera continued to snap away as the squirrel climbed up her son's back. She thought it was hilarious.
