    I wish we had squirrels here , but then I'm glad we dont , as well...
    Cats have nine lives-which makes them ideal for experimentation...

    Never argue with stupid people, they will drag you down to their level and then beat you with experience.

    Red squirrels are native to the UK, but have been largely replaced by the grey squirrel (scurelous canadensis), which are pests. I've certainly killed my fair share of greys with fenn traps, air rifles, 22lr, and shotties.

    Reds are, or were, only found in Cumbria, Northumbria and Scotland, Maybe also Lake District.

    Nice to see such a beautiful photo of a red.

    They are supposed to taste pretty good. I never tried eating them myself. Very tough, muscular animals. I've still got the odd squirrel tale for fly tying from squirrels that I killed nearly 30 years ago.
