Squirrels damage band shell

MASON CITY (KWWL) -- The blame for damage to Mason City's newly repaired band shell has been placed on squirrels.

Squirrels chewed large holes in the shell's new siding while hunting for nuts they had hidden before the shell was built.  Workers cleared out a full barrel of walnuts and acorns from the rafters.

Mothballs were put in the rafters to keep the squirrels away and have so far proven successful.
