Brickbat: Kinda Squirrelly


City officials in Vancouver, British Columbia, say they are investigating whether a boat show violated local ordinances by featuring a squirrel waterskiing in an indoor pool. City laws prohibit people from having squirrels as pets and bar businesses "from using rodents in competitions, exhibitions, performance or events." Organizers say the squirrel's performance is a way to teach children about water safety.
