This past week I noticed many dead squirrels in the road. More than I have ever noticed before. Here is what I found.
“Fall is the “great reshuffle”, a time when juvenile and adult males change territories and mix up the gene pool. Because so many are inexperienced around cars, they tend to run right out in the road at the worst possible moment. Squirrels are not particularly adept at defensive road-crossing, being a poor judge of oncoming speeds and not comprehending this massive thing bearing down on them.” by the Wildlife Rescue League
Natural selection at it’s finest.
