Gothamist reports on Black Squirrels who have moved on up from the tough streets of the Bronx to Boerum Hill Brooklyn. They also link to a slightly disturbing tale of a Black Russian squirrel mob gutting a stray dog then running off with chunks of its flesh. (This sounds like racial profiling to me.)
Scotsman.com reports that in Scotland Grey squirrels (who hail from America) might soon be dosed with contraceptives. This will be done in an effort to reduce the number of the foreigner squirrels who are multiplying like crazy and threatening the livelihood of the native born Red Squirrel, in addition to taking all their jobs.
