Dead Squirrels

Dead squirrels have been washing up on area beaches and the Grand Haven piers in recent weeks. Experts say they’re migrating, and may be unsuccessful in their attempts to cross the Grand River.

The state’s Department of National Resources is estimating that between 100 and 200 squirrels have been found dead this past week along Lake Michigan beaches in the Grand Haven area.

People up and down the Lakeshore have reported seeing dead squirrels washing up on area beaches. Lynn DeYoung of Grand Haven noted seeing 15 dead squirrels at the base of the north pier last week.
