"A squirrel was on the loose this morning on the 2nd floor, outside Room 211. We have called Facilities in an effort to locate and remove it. If you happen to see a squirrel in the building, please let someone in Room 208 know so we can update Facilities."

    Champaign Urbana, Squirrels. Seattle, Bears:

    "This was not Winnie the Pooh looking for a way back to the three-acre wood," said veteran state Fish and Wildlife Sgt. Kim Chandler. "This was a 150-pound, wild black bear. And trying to find his way out of the U District, I guess. I don't think he even knew how he got there. I certainly don't."

    I'm so sad to have missed this. Seriously.

    It makes me think of other squirrel incidents (Squirrel Cop on This American Life): http://www.gorillasuit.com/gallery/TAL_2/life_6.html

    I was planning a post on wildlife in classrooms. Surely we've all had the occasional bee or bird show up to audit.
