Native to North America, the grey squirrel was brought to Victorian Britain as an ornamental species by the aristocracy. today, these highly intelligent and adaptable animals can be seen in woodlands, parks and gardens across the country.
While many people have great affection and respect for grey squirrels, they are hated by members of certain groups, most notably those with shooting or forestry interests, and some 'conservationists' who believe that the mass killing of greys is justifiable in their quest to boost the number of red squirrels.
