I caught the fucking squirrel in my attic! (follow-up)
Edited on Fri Dec-15-06 10:59 PM by Blue-Jay
Original thread: http://www.democraticunderground.com/discuss/duboard.ph...

Organic peanut butter + wonder bread + Havahart trap = Squirrel!

Boy, was he ever PISSED OFF! The fat little hairy-assed bastard wanted to bite me so bad...


I relocated him last night to The Carlson Oxbow Nature Park. Hopefully, he'll make some friends with the beavers and great blue herons and geese and ducks. Regardless, he's out of my goddamn attic, and he has a nice place to live.

BooYah!

it probably had the resources to come around the world.

5. Ain't he cute?
I hope he's OK, but I'm glad that he's not pooping in my attic anymore.

8. That was really nice of you to trap him
Too many people would have used poison or a pellet gun. :mad:

10. Two reasons for not using poison.
1) I like squirrels, and the thought of poisoning one made me queasy.

2) He could've eaten the poison and crawled off to a hidey hole in the attic, died, and stunk up the house for a month.

95% #1, and 5% #2, to be honest.

12. Who isn't?
I've thought about changing my sig for years, but people seem to like it, so it stays until Election 2008.

9. I'm dubious . . .
there was just ONE squirrel in your attic?

They usually come several at a time to nest. :shrug:

11. I haven't heard any more since last night.
Plus, he was a male, so there's little chance of a whole furry family in the attic. If I hear any more activity, I'll catch them too.

Tomorrow, I'm looking for the entrance, and will seal it up for good.

22. I hope it wasn't a mom with a nest of wee ones....
If it was, that attic is going to reek of decaying squirrel babies in about a week.

21. I do!
But you gotta admit that it would be funny to watch you open your car door and see a squirrel jump out at you!

OK, maybe it would only be funny to everybody but you.

29. Funny right up until you have to dial 911.
Which if it were me and a squirrel in my car, would be the next logical step.

19. You'll know about NUTS when there's a squirrel in your pants.
(that sounded funnier in my head, somehow)

27. We have 3 black walnut trees in the yard
and last summer they had a HUGE bumper crop. At one point I counted 14 squirrels munching away totally rendering my deck useless. I called the DNR for advice on what to do about relocating them and was astounded to hear that they advocated drowning them rather then relocation. The lady said that relocating them is a slow death sentence as squirrels are very territorial.

Well, both options suck so I decided to just deal with the little fuckers.

30. No, no, no. You did it wrong.
When a squirrel invades your attic, you're not supposed to trap him and release him. You're supposed to trap it, make friends with it, and then dress it up in elaborate outfits and sell pictures of it on the interweb.

Like this:

Another opportunity to counteract that right-wing Sugar Bush Squirrel, wasted. For shame.
