    Default Death to the squirrel menace!

    Death to the grey squirrel menace!

    Just look at their beady little eyes!

    Obviously it's not Osama we should be worried about. Support our Red comrades. Down with the Greys!*


    *Is it a coincidence that popular culture has the alien threat as little grey guys? I think not. This guy is on to something.

    I'm surprised that the Sun hasn't latched on to this. I mean it has all the hallmarks of good journalism: outsiders who look different and may have been imported illegally, scrawny desperate things that prey on the locals, unexpected massacres (!) and do gooders trying to save them.

    Not much meat on a squirrel though... imagine its a bit like rabbit, but with a bushier tail!

    The squirrel might have been defending itself, from the pan.

    May be the girl mistook it for a furry lolly-pop

    Wonder if the squirrels are hiding weapons of mass destruction anywhere? maybe Toni and George, can assist?

    They are much smaller than a rabbit - more like a rat with a big overcoat. Soaking wet they look a bit like a stoat. Supposed to taste good, although I've not tried one yet. Might be best barbecued onna stick?

    I'd quite like to keep the local grey squirrels, Salford is short on wildlife as it is.

    All we have is (not including some of the girls in the Student's Union)....

    It would appear that to combat the rising tide of hatred the Squirrel Liberation front has enlisted the following team... to assist in the SLF's campaign of terrror and wanton destruction.

    Should you see one back away very carefully... and try not to make any sudden movements.

    Default Update on the squirrel menace!

    It seems we have new problems with squirrels. It's bad enough when they nick birdfeed but now they attack dogs!

    Perhaps the dog wasn't paying up on his "insurance".

    It's not just rats up trees we have to put up with - there are also mutant Irish rats!
