After a battle with them in our church building a while back, squirrels became a source of humor around Sycamore. In my office someone could get the mistaken idea that I am actually fond of the little rodents, as I have squirrel cards, lawn ornaments, pictures, a CD with a song about them, etc., on my bookshelves. I even have a squirrel sweatshirt. But as this picture shows, these fluffy rats can be dangerous. After all, even my squirrel sweatshirt has pictures of them on a "Ten Most Wanted" list like those in the Post Office.
If that does not convince you of their danger, maybe this link of them my brother sent me will. Though I do not recommend these uses of squirrels, at least we see some of them getting their due.
