Cull the park squir­rels

The London Free Press - - COMMENT -

A re­cent visit to Vic­to­ria Park in­tro­duced me to hun­dreds of tree rats (squir­rels) which kept ap­proach­ing me for food. Would peo­ple be so quick to feed them if they were liv­ing in their at­tic?

The city needs to cull th­ese ro­dents by about 50 per cent, as the park is too small for this pop­u­la­tion. Rats in large pop­u­la­tions spread dis­ease.

Maybe we could adopt them out to the peo­ple who feed them. Or en­force no-feed­ing by­laws.
