White Squirrels of Shelton

No squirrels to be found anywhere. Asked some locals and we got answers ranging from "I don't know anything about squirrels" to "They are very rare, maybe nesr the courthouse in Derry." Waste of our time.

Albino Squirrels

Albino squirrels also call Shelton home. According to the older residents, the albinos have been here for many years. And the numbers keep soaring.
