Mom, Pet Squirrel Threatened In Barrie

Argument between mother and son turned ugly

Barrie Police have charged a 21 year old man with Uttering Threats To Cause Bodily Harm. They were called Sunday night to a home on Ferguson Drive where they say an argument led to a woman asking her son to move out. That, she told police, led her son to threaten her and her pet – a flying squirrel. Both sides told police there had been ongoing tension in the home.
