Narcissus' Echo

Thoughts, tears, rants, ruminations, hopes, fears, love(s), and prayers of just another being passing through this wracked sphere...

Affectionate squirrels & killer squirrels

The ground squirrels at Shoreline Park are rather unusual: they are cute and affectionate!

Some of them even share their burrows with burrowing owls. It presents quite an unusual sight, a flesh-eating bird of prey sharing a burrow with a rodent.

The folks at Chain Reaction Bicycles (very friendly staff) have some unbelievable tales of "Killer Squirrels" (KS) that hurl themselves at bicyclists, often killing themselves, damaging or destroying the bicycle, and seriously injuring the cyclist. In one of the stories, it seems that they have enlisted the help of chipmunks as well.
