Man Spots Rare Squirrel in Montreal Park

Taking a trip through the park on the way home from work sometimes leads to an unexpected encounter, as Canadian man David Freiheit discovered when he caught a glimpse of a rare-looking squirrel, in Montreal, Canada.David explained the situation to Storyful, saying: “I was a scootering home from a business meeting in downtown Montreal when I spotted this white squirrel in Dorchester Square. On further research, it seems that it might be (an even rarer) white variation of the eastern grey squirrel. Ordinarily, the white squirrels are easy prey in the wild, but to the extent that they have fewer predators in urban areas, they are able to survive.” Credit: Viva Frei via Storyful
