[NAFEX] Enough of the killing

Me too.  But I'm also interested in discussion of why we see differences in 
amounts of damage.  For example, is there any way to reduce the urban/ 
suburban squirrel damage to the lower rate that I see here in the woods?  Or 
how about discussion of trapping squirrels, then killing quick & humanely, 
and then making stew?  The 'you kill it you eat it' rule.

I'm in woods & ag fields, and the most squirrel damage I see is from 
digging, not eating.  With all the fields to dig in, why dig in my pots & 
seedling beds??
