Speaking of squirrels...

From the link (which includes video):
"The owners of a convenience store in the Canadian city of Toronto have taken to social media for help after squirrels began stealing their merchandise.
The store has lost more than 40 chocolate bars."
Makes me smile!

That is so funny you posted that. Back in the Fall of 2009 I traveled to Toronto and took my son Charlie along. Our first day out we ran across all of these super obnoxious Black squirrels. Friendly but hyper agressive. No fear of humans. Never seen much less aware of jet black squirrels. We have grey ones and I've seen red. Anyway I took a bunch of up close pictures just to post for BWK when I got home.

We are plagued by ground squirrels here in the western Rockies. They keep trying to dig under the foundation of the house (where they try to eat the electrical wiring) and under the mounting pad for the refrigerated air conditioning condenser. Worse,they get under the hood of my pickup and nest there because the engine is warm. So far, they've chewed up the underhood sound deadening blanket and ate one of the wiring connectors to the engine temp sensor.
I hate these f**kin' things and do all I can to eliminate them by trapping and shooting them. I've also found that if I mix about 70% Quaker Oats and 30% plain plaster of paris they'll eat the stuff then run away and die when the mixture hardens in their little stomachs. An old orchard man's trick.
Cute little squirrels my ass!!!!!!
