Squir­rels are much-loved

Manchester Evening News - - LETTERS, COMMENTS AND EMAILS -

WITH ref­er­ence to the ar­ti­cle ‘Do squir­rels like pump­kins? Ap­par­ently so...’ (M.E.N. 29 Oct 2018).

Thank you for both pro­mot­ing an ex­cel­lent com­mu­nity re­cy­cling idea and for pub­lish­ing a hate-free ar­ti­cle that men­tions grey squir­rels.

I run a wildlife res­cue unit called Ur­ban Squir­rels, and I was thrilled to read a text that sim­ply as­sumes that grey squir­rels are now part of our ecosys­tem and are, in fact, fas­ci­nat­ing lit­tle an­i­mals.

Many peo­ple rightly ad­mire them for learn­ing to live with us in the eco­log­i­cal mess that is our cities, and en­joy watch­ing their an­tics – they are end­lessly re­source­ful and en­ter­tain­ing crea­tures. Natalia Do­ran, Lon­don
