Photo: It’s A Squirrel-Eat-Squirrel World This Spring


It must be something in the air. In the past two weeks, Sheepshead Bay has seen several brutal crimes in the area, as neighbors turned on neighbors.

What next, squirrel-on-squirrel violence? Yup!

Reader nolastname spotted this squirrel chomping down on another squirrel earlier in the day. Sitting on the sidewalk, she appeared to be preparing a nice squirrel stew with a side of acorn and some sap-infused Chianti.

What’s causing this mayhem? Must be the tough economy.

Just kidding!

This ol’ gal was just carrying her youngin around like a cat, back and forth across a street. She stopped and struck a pose for the camera.

     Blame it on the early spring. Both humans and those animals who walk on all fours have got the fever!

      Yup, I am all ready seeing mama sparrows trying to ditch annoying, hungry younguns. The calico cat on my block had a litter (somewhere?) about 2 weeks ago.
      It’d be nice if some things we eat multiply.
