First, there was was Shark Week. Now, Washington Post columnist John Kelly brings you Squirrel Week, aiming to unravel the mysteries of a furry woodland critter that, in some people, elicits as much fear and revulsion as a fanged creature from the deep.
Or maybe it’s just me.
As he launches The Post’s first Squirrel Week, Kelly will answer your burning questions — Where did all these squirrels come from? — and share readers’ love-hate experiences with these pesky nut-gatherers.
Follow Kelly through the world’s squirrel stomping grounds: America’s Great Plains, Southeast Asia’s jungles, western Africa, and, of course, Washington, home to the black squirrel.
