squirrel shot for coming to the table.

I agree with you both if they didn't enter the house and cause so much damage then i would not kill but they do return all the time and was hoping they would get the hint. I love watching them too, when they argue between one another and chase one another it looks like they are playfully enjoying themselves and my amusement when i saw a squirrel steal a corn on cob from a farmers field and try to hide it in my lawn sadly he failed miserably and gave up and just sat there eating it. Taking a gun to a squirrel is over the top, there are much better and humane ways of going about it.

I was interested in all views on this hot topic. I have culled many grey squirrel not because they eat all the bird food but the damage they have done to my property. I am the one who supplies the food but cannot choose what type of wildlife i only want to attract and wouldn't mind if that's all they are interested in but it's not . I have a squirrel cage and only use it when i am home so once caught then killed and disposed. I would not use a gun because if i didn't kill it in one shot i would feel awful it being in the wild somewhere suffering. I have a wood at the back of my property which you would think they would prefer as their habitat but my loft seems to attract them all. I mend the damage and then it is damaged the following day. This was all happening before i started to feed the birds and with a hazelnut tree at the end of my hedge i knew i would not get rid of them completely but when i was catching at least 7 a day i knew i had to many numbers. Sorry if it upsets anyone but the damage they do is shocking i am lucky my husband is an electrian and his father a retired builder to fix the roof. They are vemin with a fluffly tail nothing cute about them
