QuickTake: Squirrels Hooked on Crack?

Squirrels should stick to nuts and avoid crack!

You know that drugs are epidemic when charming little park squirrels become hooked on the hidden rocks of crack cocaine stashed away by crackheads. Such is the case in parks in Washington, D.C. and New York City. Now, the unfortunate squirrels of London appear to be the next victims.

Let's hope that gangs of dope-addicted squirrels don't start carrying signs that say "Will work for food" in order to raise money to buy more of the stuff!

Very funny! Poor squirrels. I wonder how much of an effect this has on the underground economy in the U.K.? If this article is true, and it seems likely that squirrels may become addicted to crack cocaine, perhaps the government should employ police squirrels (rodent units). They may be useful in cracking down on crack. If crackheads are hiding drugs in the parks it seems like it would be dangerous to children as well. It may raise public concern. Sadly people don't care too much about animals but perhaps the treat on children may generate a response from government officials.
