Little nasties

Is it me, or are the squirrels this summer especially nasty? Every day they're digging in the flower beds, making holes the size of a fist and tossing mulch everywhere. If I didn't know better, I'd think the garden was home to prairie dogs.

Little nasties

Is it me, or are the squirrels this summer especially nasty? Every day they're digging in the flower beds, making holes the size of a fist and tossing mulch everywhere. If I didn't know better, I'd think the garden was home to prairie dogs.

The other day two birds were communing in the bird bath and a squirrel began stalking them. He looked like a cat about to pounce. When did this behavior show up in the DNA of a squirrel?

Maybe the shrinking economy has made them mean. Anger management classes could be in order.
