God bless Arizona! Now their wise decision-makers have decided to spend
$1.25
million to build bridges
to protect 250 possibly rare red
squirrels from getting hit by cars. The bridges will likely save
five squirrels a year, at about $5,000 a head. Let's hope the survivors
have their papers on them.
