Arrow Save Beloved Neighbourhood Squirrel from Being Murdered - PLEASE SIGN.

Hi guys.

I just signed this petition, and thought others here might like to sign aswell:

"A friendly squirrel might be murdered as pest control has been called to kill him despite most local residents wanting to save his life. Cyril the squirrel has become part of the community at the Royal Arsenal Riverside residential estate in London. Local residents have dubbed him “the friendliest squirrel in the world,” feed him hazelnuts and greatly enjoy his presence. However, some people have reportedly complained about him “hiding nuts in their pot plants” and have called pest control to remove and kill Cyril.

Local residents are outraged at this proposal to kill their friendly neighbourhood squirrel and have banded together to refuse this “assassination ultimately paid for by us residents.” They have told media outlets that “to lose him would be a great shame” as he brings joy to the neighbourhood and “is so friendly and lovely that you cannot not smile when you see him.”

Sign this petition urging local authorities to take action to save Cyril the squirrel from being killed by pest control."

Here is the link:

One squirrel, and they want to kill him? They would have heart attacks in my yard, two towering oaks means many cute squirrels scampering around.

Hiding nuts in their pot plants...absurd! Poor Cyril. I hope the petition works!

^^^ Evidently... IT DID!!!!

I first saw this thread only today, and saw that it had been up for a few days. I googled to see what was up with Cyril's situation:

Peasant (1963-1972) and Fluffy (1970s?-1982- I think of you as 'Ambrose' now)- Your spirits outshone some humans I have known. Be happy forever.
