Last evening I saw it, traumatized by a blow to the head or neck from
the rat trap it had hit in my backyard. The trap was tethered to a tree.
The bugger (or its cousin) has been digging up my newly planted squash
seeds and this is the only way I've been able to control (somewhat) the
problem.

This morning it's surely dead (I saw one, maybe the same one) that was
evidently stunned from hitting the trap a few days ago, looking dead,
but when I turned my back it darted away.

Warm weather is expected the next few days here in Berkeley, CA (~80
degrees) and wonder about putting it in plastic bags (nested) in my
trash container, pickup being Wednesday morning. Call a city agency?
Bury it in my back yard? What would you do?

Dan



In the trash with it. And, get a roll of chicken wire. Lay pieces on the
ground over your seeds, slightly arched, and weighted down at the edges
with bricks. Works like a charm.

Up here the little buggers cary wire cutters (in their mouths).
Standard chicken wire doesn't hold 'em back. You need the heavy
electro welded square mesh stuff to do the job.

Most sanitary solution in suburbia would be to throw it on the burn
pile. If you dont have a burn pile then bury it under a tree you
would like to see grow faster. Or just throw the damn thing in the
garbage.

Oh sure, call 911 and I'm sure a crack squirrel disposal
team will be knocking on your door within minutes.

Sautee with a little garlic and seasoning. Serve on a bed
of rice with a little garnish.

Good grief, man. In Berkeley, CA a dead ant is "really effed up".

It's the capital of Crazy. A city that declared Marines unwelcome
and banned Marine recruitment within the city borders until the
lure of some Federal funds proved more attractive than their
"principles".

One mans crazy is another's eccenric. A degree in basket weaving from UC
Berkeley is probably worth $70K/year; from Stanford $100K.

You got it effed-up. We love Marines. They do what they do very well,
it's just the anal sphincters that tell them where and when to do it
that we have a problem with. Don't want no recruitment office,
recruiting our teenagers to become cannon fodder in the "Worst President
Ever"'s vanity wars, just to make Cheney's and Rumfeld's companies rich.
Just so's you won't think I'm a knee-jerk, anti-Republican, I should
tell you that (D) Senator Diane Feinstein's husband, Richard Blum, is
making out on the wars pretty well too.

And what can you say about politicians? If they weren't psychopaths,
they wouldn't be there. Take our Republican governator, 'Ahnold",
(Please!). He's a multiple sexual offender, who smokes dope (see
"Pumping Iron",
http://www.netflix.com/Search?lnkce=...&search_submit
..x=0&search_submit.y=0&lnkce=acsNoEnhRt ) and goes to Canada to smoke
Havana cigars (illegal don'cha know?). What can I say? People in La La
Land love him, but "posing" in big down there. People plowing their 4
wheel drives back and forth in the commute traffic, just to "look"
macho. At least the women down there dress for men, not like up here.
Nothing sexual, just competitive.

What jerkwater town did you say you where from?

vandal.* When he destroys one of the works of god we call him a
sportsman.* ~Joseph Wood Krutch

Ah, yet another pseudo environmentalist-wacko & Obammy-socialist weights in.

No trailer though-- gotta' 4300 square foot custom designed and built home
in north Georgia...and from which I can plink squirrels high in the adjacent
oak trees from my second floor bedroom window or balcony. The kids need to
use a scoped .22 rifle while I can drop them with a .22 pistol-- my favorite
being my vintage Browning Challenger with a 6" barrel.

If you're talking about the Rachel Carson quote, she was right. All mature,
educated people are fully aware of the truth of her statement by now.
