Squirrels – At It Again

It’s been a while since I’ve had a squirrel rant, but seeing as it’s autumn, it’s got to be done. This is the time of year when squirrels go mad, literally. Soon as the nuts start to fall, they’re off.

Never seen anything like it. Trying to hide it in tarmac and everything.

Rumor has it they seem to be stockpiling more than usual this year, so Mike agreed to go undercover to investigate.

Here’s Mike, blurred to protect his identity:

“Everywhere I looked, there was a squirrel burying something. I stood in a tree and watched them for hours”, said Mike, who reckons they might be planning on using them as ammunition. “Bet you anything, just when we’re least expecting it, out they’ll come pelting us with conkers, acorns, and the like.”

Food for thought, ‘scuse the pun, and worrying stuff.
