White Squirrels of Cassville

A small town south of Marionville, Missouri, Cassville also has a significant population of (non albino) white squirrels. My source: Lived there for 20 years (4th generation resident). We had several breeding pairs in our back yard. They are protected there also.

Most live in the Oak Hill/Presley Dr. area but they are scattered all over town.

Home of the White-Gray Squirrels

Cassville, Missouri, is the home of white gray squirrels. These squirrels are not albinos. They sometimes have tan or buff color on their bellies or rarely a buff colored tail. I think that Marionville, MO, which is located 30 miles northeast of Cassville, has albino fox squirrels. We had someone in the nature center [at Roaring River State Park] over the weekend that claimed Cassville stole their squirrels from Marionville. So the saga goes on.
