Today, I saw a squirrel beside a tree. Thinking it was cute, I stepped closer, picked up a pine cone and tried to lure it to come closer. After about two minutes of silently squatting on someone's lawn holding a pine cone, I realized the squirrel was dead. FML

My stepmother kept two squirrels in the house as pets, because they were "cute". They are filthy, horrible, disgusting animals. It's nice to find someone who hates squirrels as much as I do.

OP: you deserve it for trying to "lure" an animal that may carry rabies, and BITES, with something that isn't even food.


Seriously. It doesn't matter how cute they are. They're not tame, and have a good chance of carrying rabies. Jesus, when did everyone get the idea that once an animal has big eyes and soft fur that it's going to be friendly?

Let me get this straight: you thought that a wild squirrel-- a small animal which considers humans potential predators--would be willing to come closer if you showed a pine cone of all things? Did you plan on meeting Santa Claus and/or the Tooth Fairy sometime later in the day?
