NUISANCE SQUIRRELS
Squirrels popular at northeastern Ohio university also a costly nuisance

Reported by: Associated Press
Reported: Saturday, May 10, 2014 3:30 PM EDT
CANTON, Ohio


Squirrels that have taken on a minor celebrity status at a northeastern Ohio university have become a costly nuisance.

The squirrels at Malone University in Canton have multiple Twitter accounts with hundreds of followers, a lip-syncing band has been named after them, and viewers have watched videos of them posted on YouTube thousands of times.

But now Malone President David King is imploring students and staff at the private, liberal arts school to stop feeding the cute critters.

The squirrels have caused thousands of dollars of damage.

The Repository reports that the squirrels have destroyed everything from gutters to compressor control wires. They've gotten into buildings and chewed through Internet connection wires and fire alarm cables.

They've even built nests in heating and cooling units, causing air-flow problems.
