Police had little success as they attempted to pull him free however, struggling for over 15 minutes to release him.

STOMP. Problem solved in one second.

fighting chipmunk zombies would be a great name for a band!

Pity that. I rather like the little red squirrels they get in Germany (versus the huge grey buggers we get in the US).

Anyone explain the lincoln squirrel thing to me? Can't tell if it's some sort of take on the Abe vampire hunter thing, or what.

Amateurs The one I "saved" died 1 min after I got it out the door.

Sorry the little guy didn't make it, but it was probably a much less unpleasant death than most squirrels come to. Mother Nature is a biatch.

Potentially degloving his skull I'm sure would be a better way to go.

The red squirrel is adapted to coniferous forest and is common across Canada's Boreal Forest and into the Appalachians, Rockies and Alaska. In Europe it is found in Scandinavia, the UK and across Eastern Europe and Siberia. The British are losing their red squirrels because they have deforested ththe British Isles to a great extent, leaving little coniferous forest.

The grey squirrel is found in the deciduous forest of the American South and urban areas, as well as across much of Continental Europe.

We have both red and grey squirrels here because we have a mixed forest. The grey squirrels are often black and sometimes you see a mixture. I saw one once that looked like it was wearing a little vest (waistcoat in the UK). It had black markings on grey.

Where my parents live, they have only the red squirrels, which are cheeky thieves who can learn out to work around every trick you use to protect your bird feeders. They really are tremendous problem solvers. They seem to be friskier and smarter than the larger squirrels, perhaps because they have to be.

When squirrels are breeding, they pull the fur off of their tails to line their nests, so don't assume they have the mange or are sick if they have nasty rat tails. You can tell the females because their breasts swell up to a relatively large size when they are nursing, which is another hint that they are breeding rather than diseased.

Seeing squirrels in such a state makes me wonder if female werewolves have a heinous time getting custom made bras. They'd be really miserable without a proper eight cup custom-fitted leather or silk bra, I'd think. You don't see a lot of female werewolves in the movies, do you? I think it is becuase it raises a lot of questions, such as what happens if they get pregnant? Do they have pups, kids, or both? And are the kids syncronized with the Moon so they are all wolves or all kids at the same time? The wolve that nursed Romulus and Remus had it relatively easy.

But I digress.
