Grey Squirrels are Back!

Palomar Mountain Gray Squirrel   palomar mountain deer

Maybe a decade or so ago, a plague killed off our grey squirrels.  Several of you have mentioned that you have seen them again recently.  A couple days ago, Bill Aanestad shot this one.  (Oh, you know, with his camera!!!)  Great pic isn’t it? Oh, and look at the deer!  They seem to like the bale of alfalfa that was put out for them. North side of Crestline is seeing a lot more wildlife these days!

  1. Bonnie, I believe it was a bacterial virus (which humans don’t contract), that killed off the Anthony Squirrels (tree squirrels), not a ‘plague’ – don’t want to scare people. It’s the State Park ground squirrels that have the Plague.

  2. I noticed them back on my property last year. They’re protected from hunting in So Cal because they were so scarce
