A little red squirrel has become an assistant at a new parish in the west of Moscow, and does a wonderful job of attracting children to the church...

"The nature corner attracts the attention of many young parishioners. The kids are delighted with the squirrel and can watch it darting around whimsically for hours."

Ah, Russian entertainment.

Aren't red squirrels the ones that can attack humans by deliberately tossing acorns, etc.?

I think YouTube has had some videos about these little monsters and their antics.

Here is news from Scientific American about red squirrels vs. grey squirrels (from the USA).

The American Greys are called "Killer Squirrels."
