In the past two months I have found four dead squirrels on my property. I have never found a single one in the previous 20 years. Is there some squirrel disease killing these things now? I live in an urban area. Thanks.

Did the squirrels look "normal" or were they missing fur or have "crusty, wrinkled" skin around the head?
