Black squirrels also in Potomac, MD, Gradyville traveler says

About: Black Squirrel


I have seen black squirrels like these in the woods in Potomac, MD. The local story is that they were brought from England to Washington, DC about a hundred years ago, and have spread to the Maryland suburbs through the park system.

s/Mary Keltner

Thanks for the information, though this is yet another wrenching reminder that the raiding trip Cyrus (I believe) wrote about, to remove the statue of Ed Diddle from Bowling Green, KY, and bring it to its rightful place in Gradyville, Adair Co., has never taken place. It had been our hope that on that foray some of the boys would also snare a few of the white squirrels WKU has engineered and bring back to help Columbia with its More Busloads of Canadian Tourist program. We could use some black squirrels here, too.-EW
