Hosing down the squirrels


No, this wildlife expert isn't trying to drown the squirrel. In fact, quite the opposite. This ground squirrel was flooded out of its hole this week at the airport of Per, an area west of Budapest, Hungary, in an effort to save it.

Environmental protection experts resettled some 50 ground squirrels to a nearby national park because the number of squirrels increased too much in the airfield, officials said.

It's an international problem apparently, as evidenced by Santa Monica's repeated efforts -- birth control included -- to rid the city of the rampant ground squirrel population in Palisades Park.
