Power outages and more
Squirrels caused people to lose their power in
Grand Rapids, MI, Topeka, KS, South Strand, SC, Grand Island, NE, North Fargo, ND, Montreal, and Signal Hill, CA, and just to stick it to the man a little bit more, squirrels took out police surveillance cameras in Newark, MD.
Squirrels…they’re just like us…they can:
Carry a large towel up a tree
hang from their back legs (okay, we can’t do this very well)
sit on swings…
sit on even more swings!

Squirrels and crime
A man told a couple that squirrels had damaged their roof and he’d be happy to fix it…just pay up front please! The couple got some cash, the man took it, and needless to say,
no squirrels were actually involved.
A squirrel in NYC bit a subway worker when she tried to shoo him away…perhaps the squirrel was late for his train? Paramedics took the worker to the hospital for treatment.
Several animals, including a gray squirrel, were seized from a couple in Savannah, Georgia. Police had a search warrant, although it’s not clear why.
