Post Re: On the squirrel front
Coming home from the game last night, I saw two people ogling something right in front of my apartment stairs. It was a skunk, just puttering around, looking for grubs or something in our front yard. I know they have them here, but I've never seen one in years of going around the alleys. An ally for the squirrels? An enemy? Simply an emissary? He did not seem bothered at all by my presence. Prudently, I took the long way around to get to my front door.

A word on skunks, for when they are in your path.
Generally speaking, like most wild animals, they would rather flee than defend themselves. A loud noise or tossing some gravel at them usually scares them outta the way.

We have far too many skunks in these parts.

Please have a thought for Clash who spent the night in a tent near Montreal. I wonder if the little fuckers left anything for breakfast.

Though IME racoons are the real threat for coffee cake at a camping site.

WE were camping outside of Washington DC a few years ago, and had been in the city visiting the Smithsonian. When we returned to the campsite, we found that a raccoon had opened up a can of chocolate covered mints - it had a pull tab - and eaten off all the chocolate from the mints, leaving the white, round mint parts in a neat pile - like Tamerlane's piles of skulls. The ring-tailed bastard left his chocolaty paw prints everywhere. :D

Why did you send him to haunt me, Bill? What did I do to deserve this?

Deserve's got nothing to do with it.


Just a matter of Principle, then? :D

Same experience for me: the little pricks didn't touch fruits or vegetables, oh no. They struggled to open plastic containers and went straight for the sugar treats.

That would have been a Squirrelcanthrope...when they rage they change into raccoons! Now, clash, if you are going to survive this you need to bone up on the basics man. Come on! :violence-snipersmiley:

Clash, I saw one of your minions at the pool on Sunday. He looked lost, you might want to call him back home:
