Brixton Crack Squirrels and urban75

Brixton Crack Squirrels

Daft story of the day – from the South London Press.

It’s about squirrels supposedly becoming addicted to the crack rocks that addicts have been stashing in Brixton front lawns late at night.

Curiously, a near identical story was reported by one of the urban75 posters last week….

Here’s what the urban75 poster said:
Yesterday I was chatting to one of my neighbours and he pointed out that the reason I had found his screwdriver in our front garden (in central Brixton) was that crack users / dealers sometimes hide bits of their stash in our garden.

An hour earlier I’d seen a squirrel wandering round the garden, digging in the flowerbeds.

And here’s what appeared in the South London Press a week later:
“I was chatting with my neighbour who told me that crack users and dealers sometimes use my front garden to hide bits of their stash.
“An hour earlier I’d seen a squirrel wandering round the garden, digging in the flowerbeds.
“It looked like it knew what it was looking for.
“It was ill-looking and its eyes looked bloodshot but it kept on desperately digging. “It was almost as if it was trying to find hidden crack rocks.”

Could they, perchance, be related?
