Sure looks good to me.
Next somebody will be telling me it is a road kill.
Still looks good though.
My one-quarter Maine Coon caught, killed, and ate a field mouse today.
He was very happy about some fresh meat finally.
The winter snows had covered the field across the street where he usually hunts.
There are no squirrels around here.
Where we lived before there were lots of tree squirrels and he would wait all day quietly and still until one would come down from a tree and then he would grab and eat it.
Yes they are. Ate them all the time growing up. Not sure why that's a waste though...
Because that thing would be like eating your wallet. Squirrel doesn't have any fat in it so the meat needs to be prepared properly. Straight off the bone is not the way in my experience.
Some truth to that, but I've had them cooked many ways and on the bone can be great. True a nice slow cooked stew is probably best.
I've used the trap method but don't take them anywhere. I give them swimming lessons instead and not one of 'em have ever mastered the skill. In fact all of them have drowned, after which I remove the trap from their pool, a garbage can full of water, dump 'em in a bag and put it in the garbage.
It helps to develope the mindset that squirrels are simply rats with big fluffy tails.
How about laying chicken wire or hardware cloth over the area you want to cover? bulbs should still get through.
Buy a dog, ours chases them away. They are so concerned about her, when I open the patio door they ran for the hills.
I just might try this on some muskrats...
