drop kick baby squirrels down the street?

Grey ones, not cute red ones.

Can't beat a good ethical dilemma can you?

If you catch a grey squirrel you have to kill it- it's the law. So it will have to be a good kick.

Do you BoF? Really?

There's a local footpath to me where the greys are so fucking tame greedy they will come and sit on your foot as they think you'll feed them.

Perfect moment to kick them into oblivion

What's with the grey squirrel hate? Why should we hate them just because they are squirrel immigrants and they are slowly crowding out the red (native) squirrel population? Since when did being red give them such a sense of entitlement, and more of a right to life? So what, if in 50 years time the only red squirrels left will be living in some remote part of the Scotland?

And how can the government (and all the various wildlife and environmental agencies it funds) justify a programme of ethnic cleansing of grey squirrels to protect the future of red ones?

Now there is an ethical dilemma for you.

Although I am aware that I didn't phrase it as a dilemma, but I do know the difference between a problem and a dilemma before any of you start, ok?hmm

I'm going to write to the lottery people to ask for funding for persecuted grey squirrel refuges.
