Everybody knows I hate squirrels. I hate them because they clear out my bird feeder within 10 minutes of me filling it always. I especially hate them because my neighbor hand feeds them peanuts. Ohhh, let’s reward the little snots with a big juicy peanut!
Anyway, even though this particular varmint is my enemy, I would never do anything to harm one of them…even if I kind of want to. Look at this poor fellow who was again caught in the act of clearing out my feeder:
EWWWWWW, look at that poor sap’s tail! Gross!
He had an extremely hard time balancing as he was up to no good. He almost fell several times and then finally did.
What do you think happened to him? Maybe he was running across the street and a car got his tail? Maybe he got stuck in a trap? Stupid squirrel.
Well, perhaps you may recall I’m not a fan of ‘tree rats’ myself so it is sometimes difficult for me to be objective in such situation.
Definitely a close call, regardless of the cause. Your suppositions are as good as any. Leaning toward the car scenario because of the hairless tail section remaining. Well, as they say, “Close only counts in horse shoes!” 🙂
Alan: Good one! I wish my tree rat would find a new feeder! lol
I would be sympathetic…IF SQUIRRELS WEREN’T MY ARCH ENEMIES, LOCKED IN AN ETERNAL BATTLE WITH ME OVER SUNFLOWER SEEDS UNTIL OUR EVENTUAL & MUTUAL DEATH!
Ah, okay. I’m better now.
