ARLINGTON, Frederick Street South, 800 block, Oct. 4. Three squirrels were trapped in the basement window well of an apartment after falling through a grate. A neighbor went to a store and bought a plastic foam pole, or "noodle," marketed as a pool toy. The toy was put through an opening in the grate, and the squirrels climbed it and escaped.
Among cases reported recently to the Animal Welfare League of Arlington.
