Russians love squirrels, maybe a little too much.
Apparently there is a craze for keeping squirrels as pets, causing people to catch them in city parks and resell them to pet owners on the internet.
The Toronto Star wrote a story about it: Why squirrels are mysteriously disappearing from Moscow’s parks
This is sad.
As long as I’d like a squirrel for a pet, I wouldn’t take their liberty to live in the wilderness.
People who pay for that are not true squirrel lovers. They probably do it for the hype.
