I can attest to that, having helped to remove one from a friend's room 
when it fell down the chimney and landed in the fireplace.  You really
don't want to try and pick up an angry squirrel even with your towel 
wrapped around your hand (although you could try wrapping your towel
around your head in true Hitch-Hikers style, thus preventing you from 
seeing just how sharp the scheming, vicious little bastard's claws really 

Your best bet, should you ever find yourself in a similar situation, is to 
call in the Armed Badger Response Unit.  Some things really are best left 
to the professionals.

Incidentally, the squirrel in question only fell down the chimney because
it was organising illegal rave parties in the loft of the aforementioned
friend, keeping him and his housemates awake all night.  When we finally 
whacked the little blighter out of the front door with a tennis racket it 
was good riddance.  He got what was coming to him.
