It does make fascinating reading, but beware that there’s discussion of post-mortem positioning of the unfortunately deceased lads or lasses and how that relates to the interruption of power. Pretty grisly reading.
There’s even some humor. Read down until you get to the evasion tactics attempted and what happened when a faux owl was placed near the critical area.
All in all, a thoroughly informative and entertaining read.
Remember, the truth is out there, as they used to say on the X-Files.
What could be the reason for the seemingly random appearance of distinctly deep-violet squirrels? This article reports on an incident in Pennsylvania (US) and makes mention of earlier sightings in England and in Minnesota (US).
If you read that article you’ll notice (as you can see in the photo to the left), that the coloring is somewhat splotchy.
The Library of Congress regularly posts to its Flickr account, and it’s worth following for the gems here and there.
In this picture, we see a full page spread from the New-York Tribune of Sunday, May 2, 1909, with the headline, “Spring always increases the number of the park squirrels’ admirers and the little fellows seem to relish their popularity.”
