    I disagree. The squirrels that live between the walls of my house have plenty of room, they might just need to rearrange the mountain of black walnuts they have in storage. And with multiple squirrels one could hold the stock while another pulled the trigger.

    Seriously, they are the worst ever. I don't mind sharing, but for shi*s sake do you need to make so much noise when eating your nuts at 5 AM?

    Lol!! We have ninja squirrels who sit on our front steps in the middle of the night and crunch nuts, leaving sharp, pointy shells for me to hurt my feet on when I grab the morning paper.

    I have a Manx Cat...She is our rifle...A few weeks ago a squirrel was teasing and tormenting my Ducks and Chickens...My Little Call Duck met the squirrel head on behind the run...The duck lost it and ran back, running into the side of his pool and rolling over...The next day my cat was calling for me...She caught and killed the squirrel...

    Good little Rifle....Her name is Alley...
