Where I live in Upstate NY near the NJ border there are tons of squirrels. At times they are a nuisance. This past summer they started doing crazy,
out of the ordinary things, like coming up to certain people and grabbing onto their clothing. Then all of the sudden 5 days ago they just disappeared
--- every single one of them. Dozens of them that lived in the many trees that line the street and canopy this this cul-de-sac --- they all
disappeared and no one has seen even one of them.
Not one has been sighted for 5 days now by myself or any of the neighbors. This has never happened before that I know of and I've lived here for nine
years. Even the mailman said to me this morning, "Hey where did all the crazy squirrels go?' I said "Good question." Just then a Monarch Butterfly (my
favorite) flew by us. I haven't seen a MB here in over 6 yrs.
The weather has been great, around 70 degrees every day and not windy. It hasn't rained all week. So, this has nothing to do with the weather. All of
the neighbors are talking about it because it's so noticeable and unusual. The 10-year old twins next door said three of the squirrels had followed
them around this past summer whenever they were outside playing during the day or riding their bikes on the sidewalks.
These squirrels would run all over the common areas and race up and down trees, and suddenly zero activity. Very strange. Acorns, their main food
source here, blanket the lawns and sidewalks and common areas. Not a squirrel in sight to collect them. First time in nine years. The town said they
will come by tomorrow to clean up the acorns all over the street, sidewalk and common area. But, no one knows where the squirrels are or where they
suddenly went. Dozens of squirrels just vanished.
