Try Squirrel Smoothy all over yourself.
I was doing a road ride and in a small group ride. I was about 4th back and this panicked squirrel gets hit by the lead guy goes off about 3 feet, does a 180 and runs right into the spokes of the guy directly in front of me. I got splattered with guts and fur. YUCK! The good thing was the guy behind me got his share too. The bad thing was "Killer" blew 4 or 5 spokes in his wheel and couldn't finish the ride.
We had to stop and rinse off with any/all water we had. We also had 4 or 5 cars stop by thinking we were injured! Still laugh about it, and tease "Killer" about it.
Word to the wise: Watch out for suicidal squirrels!
