    Grey Tree rat in garden, Border Collie in house.

    Border Collie let out of the door = one terrified Tree Rat in next door garden - 15-0 and the GTR is out of the comp.


    If it's not a Border Collie it's just a dog!

    Sounds like a crack suicide squirrel... we're lucky that only two people were injured...

    Just goes to show that our 90 day holding period for such terror squirrels is a valid policy. Though perhaps 90 days isn't long enough, and we should move for an indefinite holding period.

    ...........90 days in nowhere near enough. They're tough nuts to crack.

    It looks like the squirrels have upped their efforts again.

    And they set this evil menace free... Shocking...

    What a cunning trap someone had set... a little cruel perhaps but would have been effective at handling the menace of these bushy tailed monsters...

    I thought that it was illegal to release them once trapped - they are officially classed as vermin I believe.

    Default Eat the little b*ggers!

    Seems to be gaining acceptance:-

    and
    http://www.thenorthernecho.co.uk/mos...el_pancake.php

    I would eat the ones I catch, but don't feel confident about skinning and gutting them, and by the time the bushy fur is gone there isn't much meat on them - possibly best to bung a dozen or so in a stew?

    More evidence just in!

    Beware the flaming squirrels!

    I want to know what the government is going to do to protect us from this obvious new avenue of attack!
