I had squirrel just once, too. My then husband used to slingshot pebbles at squirrels to keep them away from the bird feeder. One day he got a native Colorado Abert's black squirrel right between the eyes. We ate it, so its life wouldn't have been a "waste." I was NOT impressed. And this was a "corn fed" squirrel at that.

When I told my Dad about the incident, he said that he would have to be at gun point to ever eat a squirrel again. Apparently, he and his older brother often shot squirrel back in Kentucky to put meat on the table during the Depression.

So leave poor squirell nutkin alone, y'all!
