What could be cause of squirrel death?
Hello. We have quite a few squirrels in our garden and today I have found a dead one, which is intact, but the only evidence of injury is a red - not bleeding - area around its bottom and tail.
We have tall conifer trees in which we have seen a sparrow hawk and have seen foxes at night. Cats also come into our garden.
I am a bit baffled as to what might have killed the squirrel or its cause of death. I'm a bit concerned if it might have an infection.
Would anyone on here have an idea as it is baffling me?
