Vandalism Condemned

19 11 2011

Ballycastle SDLP Councillor Dónal Cunningham has condemned as “mindless” the vandalism and destruction of the Red Squirrel feeder site in Ballycastle forest.

“Great efforts have been put into the construction and maintenance of these sites by the local Glens Red Squirrel group, this vandalism can not be allowed to damage the red squirrel population within this area of Ballycastle Forest.”
“The Glens Red Squirrel Group was formed to protect the Red Squirrels in the Glens which have one of the biggest concentrations of the animals in Ireland. I have seen at first hand the efforts of the group through the recent “squirrel walk” and hope that the actions of a few do not deter the enthusiasm of the group to continue in their very important work”
