FirstNationalBastard: Just wait until the squirrels organize...
Gothnet: FirstNationalBastard: Just wait until the squirrels organize...Organize?God dammit, that's the last thing we need, squirrel unions constantly asking for more nuts, squirrel teamsters threatening to strike and impede honest squirrel businesses from competing in the squirrel marketplace. Squirrel politicians running for squirrel president on a platform of intolerance for squirresexuals, or deporting all the black squirrels back to Canada where they came from, squirrel senators living fat off the nuts that other squirrels collect, taking bribes to ensure their buddies get all the prime trees. Squirrel congresssquirrels legislating o'squirrel-care into being, taking choice of squirrel insurance away from the average squirrel on the street, squirrel supreme court legislating from the bench about squirbortions, SPOTUS declaring war on the marmots of central asia with only the red squirrels of england for backup....I see what you mean, the future is a scary place.
Old Man Winter: One year I stuck a stuffed-animal dog head on a stick an put it in my garden area. I knew dogs would not care, but I found that a lot fewer neighbours decided to let their dogs piss on my flowers.
Gothnet: If he was killing them quickly and without cruelty, I'm not sure I really see the problem.I love animals, and abhor animal cruelty, but they were repeatedly invading the guys house, and it's not like the world is running out of squirrels any time soon. The BB gun makes me think that maybe they weren't being killed outright and fast, and may be the wrong tool for the job, but still.
starlost: i bet the shooter was pissed at the neighbor because the neighbor fed them or left food/garbage outside uncovered.

Fissile: This guy's real problem is in the way he killed the squirrels. Under N.J. state law, BB guns are classified as firearms. I'm sure his town has laws against discharge of a firearm within city limits.
Kurmudgeon: Fissile: This guy's real problem is in the way he killed the squirrels. Under N.J. state law, BB guns are classified as firearms. I'm sure his town has laws against discharge of a firearm within city limits.Umm, I'm no gun enthusiast, but to be a firearm, shouldn't a firearm produce fire of some kind?Seeing that a BB gun has no firing cap or black powder of any kind, wouldn't classifying them as a firearm be an out and out lie?
jmadisonbiii: He should've used a squirrel catapult to launch them back into the neighbor's yard. Probably still would've gotten arrested, though.[i.ytimg.com image 480x360]/Where is Eddie? He usually eats these goddam things.
Tyrone Slothrop: He should put a chipmunk's head in their bed.
rkelley25: He can't use the "stand your ground" defense, because the squirrels weren't black
bohab: i must be some sort of monster to these people.
Count Dyscalculia: What? Not one comment about "he shouldn't have taken matters into his own hands" spoken by an authority figure? It's as if they are equating him popping a few squirrels with a pellet gun and him walking over to thesuspected neighborhood thief and shooting him while yelling "There! That'll teach you you fekkin bastard!"It also begs the question, out of whos hands the matter was taken. The Police? Animal Control? The Local pest control company? Cops; A squirrel...GTFO. Animal Control; Hahaha, squirrel....noob! Local Pest Control Co. ; $500 upfront w/no guarantee.As for the nosey neighboor...well he should have known about the crazy old coont living next door as there is almost a 100% certainty that shes the one feeding the little bastards and watching them all the time for enjoyment. As such he should have found a way to distract her...and also NOT hang them up for show.
phenn: Not sure I understand the squirrel hate. Around here, they really don't cause any dramas. Just hang out in the oak trees and scold the neighborhood cats.

It gets kind of hard to sleep when they're running trials for the 100m dash in preparation for the 2014 Squirrel Olympics six feet above your head.
Hermione_Granger: phenn [TotalFark] 2012-06-17 09:38:39 AMNot sure I understand the squirrel hate. Around here, they really don't cause any dramas. Just hang out in the oak trees and scold the neighborhood catsI was in Washington D.C. I'd spent a lovely day at the Smithsonian American History Museum and I was enjoying lunch on a park bench. A squirrel walks up to me and begs for a cheese curl. I said no. The squirrel gets closer. This thing was pretty big and reminded me of Stitch.I throw a few cheese curls a few feet away but he doesn't see this and he wants the ones in my hand. I get up and walk away. The squirrel follows me. I walk in another direction, the squirrel continues to follow me.I try to shoo it with my roller bag. It won't leave me alone. I finally appeal to a group of strangers to help me and it takes me and a crowd of other people to shoo the squirrel away. It still continues to watch me through some bars and a man finally decides to wait with me at the bus stop. The squirrel does not walk away entirely until I get on the bus. I half expected to see the scary bastard at my next stop.So I hate squirrels and I despise people who feed the nasty little buggers.Please, don't feed the squirrels.
