Ann from London said ... at first I thought it was a small cat but then I realized it was a white squirrel. He is living in a busy urban area, so hopefully he can stay safe.
Also from London, Deacon wrote ... I saw a white squirrel in Maitland two years in a row in London, Ontario.
Kayla wrote ... I had no idea white squirrels even existed until today. I was out for my daily run and this little fella came out of the trees to greet me. I wish I could have gotten a picture of it! My boyfriend would have loved to have seen this. He's from northwestern Ontario, where they rarely see black squirrels, which anyone from the Niagara region knows - we are overrun with them! Ha ha! Hopefully, I'll see him out tomorrow and I'll be able to snap a picture :)
Brian from Brampton reported ... we saw a white squirrel in our backyard in Brampton, Ontario, at the end of August 2015. This is the only such sighting by us.
A reader from Meaford wrote to say ... I saw a white squirrel climbing trees around a house for sale on my street in Meaford, Ontario in August 2015. I was driving so I didn't get a picture.
A reader from Belle River spotted three or four white squirrels next to the OPP station in the park.
Seven from Exeter observed ... I have seen a white squirrel in south Exeter at a park, while I was having a picnic.
Patrick wrote to say ... I have lived in the Goderich / Clinton area since 2006. The most common place to spot white squirrels is on the Exeter MacNaughton Morrison or Morrison Dam Conservation trails, however, I have also seen them in Seaforth and Clinton and even north of Clinton on Stone School Line. Unfortunately they have climbed away too quickly to take a good photograph of them.
