    Careful what you post. Correct me if I am wrong but I believe it is illegal to shoot red squirrels

    Not if they are destroying property or you are a trapper, but they are considered a fur bearing animal.

    So does that mean you must not let the pelt spoil? That you can't hunt them just for meat?

    You have the right to shoot squirrels as long as they invade your property and destroy everything in its path. They may be animals, but what a right they have to destroy everything I build. I bear all the expenses for their damages. It's everyone's choice, or get rid of them, or always clean and fix things after these squirrels. I personally chose to get rid of them, but I turned first to professionals. The people at houston.aaacwildliferemoval.com helped me a lot. There were over thirty squirrels in my attic, and I didn't know. They got to the point of eating my wires. I hate them for that!

    I think you'd have some explaining to do (and a nice ticket or maybe worse) if a conservation officer decided to ask you about the red squirrels in your pocket as you come out of the woods.
