OK, all kidding aside, how can you trust a “city” with no squirrels? I mean, I’m willing to forgive the 2:1 ratio of seagulls to pigeons and even accept the harbor is infested with barking sea lions (true story), but where the hell are all the squirrels?!?!

Yes Bay Area zoologists, there are squirrels over the bridge in Oakland, but there are none in the city of San Francisco. For the love of all things holy, the enormous Golden Gate Park is even home to a herd of buffalo (also true) but not a single squirrel!!!!

That’s just weird.

No squirrels in San Francisco...

No squirrels in San Francisco...

But plenty of buffalo!

But plenty of buffalo!


About adamahata

On February 5, 2008, after 15 amazing years in New York City, I got married, changed careers, and moved out to San Francisco. All within a three-week period, and with very little preparation. This blog is for those of you who follow me out to San Francisco (or have been here for a while and are still trying to figure this place out). You're not in Kansas anymore Dorothy.

    Indeed there are squirrels. My dog chases them all day long in Buena Vista Park. You just don’t see them in Golden Gate because they hate smelly hippies and tourists.
