Sciurus carolinensis (eastern gray squirrel)

Not really an endemic species - somehow it is introduced from the Eastern half of North America. They only live in the Vancouver and Victoria part so far, but apparently they can kick out our local species. This poor little guy seems to be missing a leg, but I only noticed when I looked at the photos at home.
