Re: Flying Squirrels in Erie County
I live in Northern Butler County and I saw a flying squirrel alive a couple years ago. My brother and I were checking archery stands and something had built a nest in his seat. When he flipped it over this flying squirrel came busting out at him. He freaked and shimmied up the tree like a bear, flying squirrel coming right after him.
I was standing on the ground laughing until it launched itself off the tree, legs wide open, gliding right at me. Pretty awesome.
They are a nocturnal animal, that is why you don't see them. I guess the only way to find them in the day is disturb one like we did.
