Three weeks in squirrels
We're long overdue for a squirrel news update, and there's a lot to report!
Five amazing squirrel facts!
I won’t spoil all the fun, but my favorite is the fact that some squirrels hang fungi out to dry, essentially making mushroom “jerky” – gross (I hate mushrooms) but awesome. Read the facts here.
Why is this squirrel paddling around in the shallows of this beach in Wales? No idea.
Controversial squirrel rescue causes more controversy
Last time I reported on Grace the disabled squirrel who a family had rescued and raised without a wildlife permit. Social media helped concerned folks get attention for this issue. The squirrel was seized by the state and brought to a wildlife rehab center. What is unclear is what will happen if Grace cannot be released back into the wild. Petitioners claim that in that case, the state will euthanize her instead of return her to her rescuers. Read about it here.
