Squirrels taste good and are also a classed as a pest in most places. So blasting them is a two for one deal.
I get that "squirrel tastes good" and that's fine, if indeed you need to put them on thee table for dinner. What I suggested is that some people shoot them because they feel they are a "pest" when in fact, the people who shoot them for that reason are more often the real pests.
BTW, they are not classed as pests officially "in most places" that's utter nonsense.
Something tells me that people like you have never had squirrels chewing through power lines, running through the walls of your house, (never happened to me personally but I known a few people who that's happened to) or deciding that your brand new garage is their personal jungle gym. Squirrels have also been known to be carriers of plague fleas. If you shave the tail of a squirrel, you know what you get? A rat that likes to live in trees.
My neighborhood has tons of squirrels. In fact, about two dozen of them live in the towering trees above my home and those of my immediate neighbors, and they routinely use both of those two huge trees and the smaller ones in my yard as their jungle gym, along with anything else they can run across or jump on. They are not pests, nor are they plague carriers, although eventually, they do cause damage to the electrical lines, which have to be serviced every several decades. (the lines behind my house are working just fine and have not been changed out in over 40 years.
If you clumsy, self-centered yuppies would stop making your neighborhoods into barren wastelands for wildlife, they would not be pushed into the behaviors you are claiming to experience, erm, that is, that you claim your sister's friend's brother's aunt's butcher's illegal alien worker experienced anyway.
Oh, and btw, I would strongly recommend you stop eating your "plague infested" squirrels. That's a good way to make yourself sick.

So your sister's friend's brother's neighbor said the gypsies steal children, aye? Lol. How typical. I'll bet you call yourself a liberal too.
I live on 58 acres of land. That discounts "self centered yuppie." So stop making assumptions, and you might start saving time typing.
P.S. You've been living in the same house for 40 years!?! Maybe you should move out of your parents basement and stop spending all your time watching the squirrels frolic and get a life.
Nice try. I own my home, chum. And I've lived in the neighborhood for over fifty years, about 55 in fact.
Wow, on top of displaying a hallmark of a sociopathic personality, you also resort to tired schoolyard bully games.
Cool. That has a lot to do with squirrels. I notice that you didn't have anything to say about your false assumptions. Schoolyard bully games? I'm not the one name calling. Yet.
Ignorant city slicker.
Well that's the end of that. Typical.
