Squirrel Deaths

During the winter period there has been a serious issue with Squirrel deaths. Several squirrels have been found in the meadows area highly mutilated, as if a wild animal has attacked them.
During the winter season Squirrels tend to be active in short burst and be seen less, but experts believe that either someone with a hunting dog or some other wild animal has been tracking down the squirrels in the meadows area and attacking them leaving very little of them left.
Edinburgh’s Environmental services are discussing protective measures in case this continues.
