The white squirrels of Trinity Bellwoods Park have always been rock stars among Toronto’s urban wildlife, and now, unfortunately, that’s more true than ever. In a scene right out of Sid Vicious’s boudoir, one of the albino rodents was discovered on Saturday dead and dangling by its teeth from a wire strung on a hydro pole near the park. The Star has the obligatory crime-scene photo. It’s believed that there are several more white squirrels living in and around the park, though, so this one’s fatal attraction to power cables shouldn’t spell the extinction of the subspecies.
