Supplemental feeding increased the number of red squirrels (Tamiasciurus hudsonicus) captured on two trapping grids, leading Sullivan (Journal of Mammalogy, 71:579-590, 1990) to infer that the population density of residents had increased. This conclusion is questionable because the residency status of captured squirrels was unknown.
