Hundreds sign petition to save squirrel

Hundreds of people have signed a petition to save a squirrel in South East London after some residents threatened to kill the innocent animal for "hiding nuts in their pot plants".

Distressed residents of Woolwich, London began the petition to save 'Cyril the squirrel' following calls to pest control to the Royal Arsenal development to exterminate the furry fellow for hiding his food in residents gardens.

Nearly 250 people have signed the change.org petition for the single squirrel in a bid to save its life with dedicated citizens to the cause deeming the little guy as "part of the community".
