Duluth News Tribune outdoors columnist Sam Cook explains that while Twiggy the Water Skiing Squirrel is whiling away her winter in sunny Florida, he’s been driven to “full-skitter alert” for the sound of squirrels as they try to escape the sub-freezing temps and seek a little shelter in his house.
He’s not alone, he writes:
“I hope we are better off than one woman who wrote me after reading of our squirrel issue. She live-trapped squirrels or ground squirrels that presumably were getting in her house — and drowned 36 of them. Despite that, she still had squirrels in her house.”
