Somewhere out there is a very angry squirrel.

A squirrel that entered a senior living community in Florida on Thursday afternoon caused some trouble and injured residents there, according to The Orlando Sentinel, which first reported the story.

It happened at a place called Sterling Court in Deltona, and the disturbance was so bad that someone called 911 for assistance.

“We have a squirrel that entered our building and it’s, and it’s in our activity room,” says the caller in the call obtained by the Sentinel, “and it’s jumping on people and biting them, and scratching them. So we need help.”

When the 911 dispatcher asks the caller if she needs an ambulance, she responds, “I don’t know if we need to go in an ambulance but we need some care for people here.”

The squirrel caused some minor injuries that afternoon, according to Brian Fawkes, a company spokesman. He told PEOPLE two residents and a staff member were driven to the hospital afterward and treated for bites and scratches, and later released.

The squirrel was thrown out a door, Fawkes said, and remains at large (signs about the incident have been posted around the independent living facility).

Deltona Animal Control was alerted, and they set traps outside the center should the squirrel decide to return.
