One of my aunts had a German Shepherd that would get into the same situation, squirrel just out of reach. The dog died early one winter, my aunt got a rescue shortly after that, this dog being a few inches taller than the one the squirrel was not afraid of. Wasn't afraid of the new dog, either. Didn't live long enough to fear it.


That's hilarious. Serves the squirrel right. Reminds me of a friend of mine who had a big brown mutt. I don't think any of us knew what kind of dog it actually was. There was a squirrel that would tease that dog mercilessly from the top of the fence around his yard. It ran him in circles, jumping across the corners. This went on for years. Then one day the squirrel missed his jump, and the dog took out all those years of frustration in about 5 seconds.

I guess the old saying is true. There are old squirrels and there are bold squirrels; but there are no old, bold squirrels.




"Stupid people proliferate because this world has been made safe enough they survive long enough to procreate."

"The people hate the lizards and the lizards rule the people."
"Odd," said Arthur, "I thought you said it was a democracy."
"I did," said Ford, "it is."
"So," said Arthur, hoping he wasn't sounding ridiculously obtuse, "why don't the people get rid of the lizards?"
"It honestly doesn't occur to them. They've all got the vote, so they all pretty much assume that the government they've voted in more or less approximates the government they want."
"You mean they actually vote for the lizards."
"Oh yes," said Ford with a shrug, "of course."
"But," said Arthur, going for the big one again, "why?"
"Because if they didn't vote for a lizard, then the wrong lizard might get in."

Okay, we are going to need to see video proof. SF members are more than qualified to judge IF it truly is comedy gold.

You need to take the little bastards like 10 miles away or they come back. Or I guess you can take them for a swim as my mother-in-law suggested...


Place trap in full bathtub.

My dog hates them, and she is quick when she wants to be. I found a decapitated squirell head with a spinal column hanging out of it one time...I guess that one was either slow, stupid, or both. She has also killed a family of possums.

Currently I have a chipmunk who's been running around the house trying to figure out how to get inside. He's fast, and smart enough to stay out of the back yard where the dog is. I've been carrying around the single-six loaded with rat shot, just waiting for him to show his face again...

The ones around here are ballsy little corksoakers. I can usually get within 6-8 feet while they DARE me to catch them.

Been trying to hit them with the Crosman, but haven't seen any since I upgraded to the steel breech and better sights.
