    Interesting question. As Squirrel does have a hunting season on public property a case could be made to charge the owner with hunting out of season. Thing is the bigger concern is the loss of control of the dog. Dog won't know the difference between a squirrel, cat, or some other ankle biter dog. That owner should be on notice and have the dog leased at all times off property.

    My dog tries to kill every squirrel he sees. Arch enemies. Some people get upset with the stupidest things........
    Iím suspicious of people who don't like dogs, but I trust a dog who doesn't like a person.

    Most dog will kill a squirrel but not a cat or small dog, so it doesn't mean they are danger for the society.
    But I think you are right about the lost of control and the out of season.

    True that they may not be a danger..... on the other hand they may. Its the owner that needs to exercise a greater level of control when prey drive is high. Better to be proactive than reactive
