Pest control

Today, my new neighbor offered to "humanely capture and relocate" the squirrels in my attic. He then "humanely" shot at them with a BB gun, and the "relocated" them into his stomach once they were killed. Welcome to the neighborhood. FML

I think I'll stay in my neighborhood. O_O

It all depends on where you live, they're abundant around here and they tear up insulation and wiring in houses. If they're left there to nest you'll just get twice the amount of tree rats destroying everything, so we just opt to shoot them. I do see how someone could say that's horrible though.

It's only horrible if you cook them wrong.

Did you at least get invited to the BBQ?

You should have just kept them there and got a dog. It would be an infinite source of fun for him!

Well from personal experience, my dogs have only once been able to kill a squirrel. It was a sick one that was probably never going to get better and would die anyways.

It was in their attic, not the backyard.

That would not be a humane way of getting rid of the squirrels at all. That sounds barbaric.

"Barbaric"? That's nature. Get used to it.

Nature yes - so outside the dogs might do it, but to trap the squirrels somewhere so they can't get away and have the dog slowly pick them off - that seems wrong. Isn't it a cruel way of killing something?

So that they will be marinated good and served well?

Why. People hunt and eat squirrels all the time. They're pretty good

The problem with what the neighbor did is that he lied to OP about how he was going to deal with the squirrels. He said he was going to humanely remove them and relocate them, of which he did neither.

it would've driven me batty... okay, fine..I'll .. .

Unless it's a flying squirrel then it might as well be.

Note to self: NEVER go to his house for dinner or any meal.

They also absorb flavor really well. I cooked some recently with a pot that the night before made beef stew in and just wiped the pot down getting all the grime from the stew out of it, and they tasted amazing.
