Typhoon Guchol rolled through Japan, killing one, injuring many, and destroying a lot of property. One of the things it destroyed was the squirrel housing at Inokashira Park Zoo in western Tokyo, and now the zookeepers are scurrying to snag them back.
In all, about 30 Japanese squirrels are on the loose throughout the zoo. It’s not certain how much of an attraction the squirrels are at the Inokashira Park Zoo. So far, they’ve been able to net 18 of the squirrels. This isn’t the first animal escape their holding pens in Japan recently. A Humboldt penguin escaped an aquarium and was on the lam for 82 days. Good luck to the zookeepers. I’m sure there are some good squirrel hunters here in the U.S. who would let you borrow their dogs if you need to. –Brian McClintock
