Me too. But I'm also interested in discussion of why we see differences in

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 &
