Squirrels In A Zoo?

Yes! According to this article in yesterday's New York Times, the "United States Fish and Wildlife Service recently delivered four rare Mount Graham red squirrels to the [Phoenix] zoo...because of a worse-than-average fire season that has threatened their fragile habitats." This subspecies of squirrel has been on the endangered list since 1987.

Well, I'll be darned. I thought squirrels were for chasing and hopefully eating, but for looking at in a zoo? I think I'll write the Fish and Wildlife Service in protest...In the meantime, enjoy the full article here: www.nytimes.com/2011/07/27/us/27squirrels.html?_r=1&scp=2&sq=Marc%20Lacey&st=cse

P.S. We're really glad that humans are going to such effort to save these little critters, but we have an image to keep up, you know-hehehe.

No way! I won't want to go to the zoo to see squirrels. They should be chased in the woods!

I agree - dogs must keep up their images but it's great that someone is looking out for this threatened species!
