They're not uncommon around this are. Pretty sure it's just a genetic melanistic variation (similar to black leopards/jaguars), rather than a specific species. I think they're pretty cool.

I remember seeing quite a few white squirrels when I played Gordon Holton near C'bus back in 2011. I haven't white squirrels any where else in my travels.

Yeah, nobody has called me Homer yet, but let’s give it a minute. After all, the thread isn’t “uncommon critters”.

Same here. I think we're more or less same latitude, right? Weird.

Carrollton DG Course near St. Louis has quite a few groundhog (woodchuck) living on the course. They're interesting, but can be semi-aggressive (mostly just bluffing) if you get to close to their den entrance.

The worst/most dangerous I've come across are the ground-nesting Yellow Jackets less than 20ft from #6 basket at The Fort DG Course in O'Fallon, MO, though. Those bastards got me 4x, and I was quick to react. It's gonna be bad news if they swarm someone that's allergic. I tried to report it to the ground maintenance crew, but they were nowhere to be found. I did report it to a cop driving through the park (who said he's pass it along), but nothing had been done when I checked a few days later.

Step up. All it takes is someone to take the initiative. Stop by a store and pick up a couple cans of long range, spray bee death and bring the pain. Being "THEY" is the best!!

Show 'em whose boss, Mickster!

Several times over the years I've had success getting rid of ground hornets by throwing some old fruit on the nest. The local skunk finds the fruit and discovers a tasty (to a skunk) hornets nest to dig out. Hasn't always worked but cool when it does.

This past weekend we had a club campout & glow. A couple racoons spent all night trying to get into a cooler.

Can't blame them we ate real good!
