Squirrels that eat your gourmet strawberries are an Abomination Unto Nuggan. :evil:

Squirrels are never an abomination. Well, at least not the red ones.
On with their heads! I'm the clown prince of fools
if you don't get the joke it's your loss
Love and laughter you see are the new currency
'cause greed's coinage is not worth a toss

Exile yourself to the unforgiving continent of Wraeclast!

ONLY the squirrels that eat Catch-up's strawberries are a abomination but would cease to be so if Catch-up would install some netting to keep the little buggers off the strawberries ;) Hungry critters are what they are and must be second-guessed at all times. They are probably feeding families at the moment.

Squirrels are rats with good P.R. But I like rats so that's ok.

Grey squirrels are an abomination unto Nuggan. Red squirrels are ok - they dont do so much damage to trees.

Mind you Grey Squirrel curry id lovely......so they are useful for something! :D

I know you love trees and don't want to see them damaged, but don't you cut chunks off and burn pictures onto them? :? Not judging, just asking ;)

:lol:

I do love trees.......but the only way they really prosper is to be managed. An unmanaged woodland eventually becomes dark and tangled and can actually have less biodiversity than a well managed woodland........so in answer to your question......'all my wood is sourced from responsibly managed woodlands, or from fallen pieces of wood' ;) :lol:

Red squirrels do some minor damage, but their grey cousins are just vandals. I've seen them ring bark the top 20ft of some beautiful norway maple trees, then bungy jump off ripping off 8-10ft of bark down the trunk.....and not to eat it, but to attract the laydeees. The tree dies back and the timber is stained, rotten and useless. Grey squirrels are just thugs ..............Introduced, environment damaging thugs..........Introduced, environment damaging, TASTY thugs :angry-cussingblack: ;) :lol:

We only have the red squirrels here, and we're definitely going to get netting to put over the strawberries. It's not like they needed the food. We have a giant black walnut tree in our backyard that they could eat themselves sick on. Granted, there aren't any walnuts yet this year, but they can find plenty of them from last year. Some of the squirrels in our neighborhood are so fat, it's a wonder they can scamper around so quickly. Although they can get tame enough where they don't even bother to run away. Their favorite pastime is teasing the neighborhood dogs. They'll half hang off the lowest branch just watching the dogs work themselves into a frenzy over it. :roll: We don't have grey squirrels, but as you get closer to the Canadian borders you'll see black squirrels.

Maybe that's because they all over here. Grey squirrels, originally from North America, were released in the UK by 19th century landowners. They are now very common and widespread.

They Greys have decimated the Red squirrels mostly in England.

To be fair, certain idiots also released sparrows and starlings in North America. ;)

But back to the abominations... :D


Split/cracked fingertips are absolutely an abomination unto Nuggan! :(
