Today is dedicated to appreciating our furry neighbors
Squirrels are mostly looked at as either a nuisance that you are trying to get out of your home or property or you barely think about them at all. Today is national squirrel appreciation day, a day dedicated to education and conservation efforts surrounding our furry little neighbors. Squirrels play an essential role in our ecosystem by aiding in reforestation. Some residents are participating in the day by setting out food for the squirrels.
Coyotes are sighted often in the state of North Carolina. Coyotes look like red wolves but are much smaller in size. Officials are warning people that they may see an uptick in the amount of coyotes out and about from now until the end of March. This is peak mating season for them and they tend to be more active during these months. Coyotes are some of the most adaptable animals on Earth and wherever there is a food source, they can thrive i.e in urban or suburban areas.
