Saw one today. I saw him(her) last Thursday near a job where I was working. Went out there today to finish up, and there he was again.

There has been 5 guys working on this job, and I am the only one to see it. I wish the other guys could see it. Pretty neat.

Saw this squirrel about 10 west of Fredericktown in s.e. mo.

It must not be illegal to shoot albino deer in Mo. The guy I work with that shot one, tagged and checked it with the Conservation.

WE have some black squirels near here. In the litter there was a brown one.

The parks in Montreal are known for their all black 'grey' squirrels...I have only ever seen one below the border in Vermont...

Salmoneye,black greys used to be unique in one small city about 40 mi away from here in NW WI,and protected by ordinance as"city pets",but in past few yrs we've been seein more and more all over the area.Usually "in town" squirrels.Either the gene has become more dominate or perhaps(my suspicion)someone has live trapped and relocated a few,spreading the variation.

The in-laws have a pair of em living in an old maple tree on the farm....both of em snow white...the offspring have all been normal the last 2 years...I don't know the lifespan of a squirrel....we had a tendency to shorten it with .22 rifles for the stew pot.....

This is my first time seeing one.
I've heard that albino's can show up in a litter and there won't be anymore.

A guy I work with shot an albino spike buck a few years ago and he had the pictures. I don't know if I could shoot one myself. Probably

Check the laws before you shoot one - it's illegal in Michigan, - don't know about your state! Albino animals tend to have short lifespans anyway. Not only do they stick out like a sore thumb to preditors, but they tend to be genetically inferior, and subject to disease and stresses that a normal animal would survive.
