Round up the ground squirrels

Gerald N. Gold, MD., Avon

The invasion of Nottingham Park by burrowing rodents is not cute to me. Aside from the destruction of the sides of the lake, the large holes in grassy areas are waiting disaster for a distracted walker. The fleas, flies, and ticks that the rodents may be subject to can carry bubonic plague and Hanta Virus! They are a hazard to pets and humans. Kudos to the city for any control measures.
