Ack...:zombie:

I could never eat squirrel anyway. Here's some pictures of the little dude I raised from a pup after he fell out of his nest during Hurricane Ivan. He had to be fed puppy formula every few hours with an eyedropper for the first few weeks I had him. I took him to work with me in a soft-sided cooler (yes, I have an awesome and very understanding boss :D ) until he got to the point he could be moved to a cage and was eating solid food (only needed formula a couple of times a day). It was a bittersweet moment when he was ready to be returned to the wild...lots of fun memories of that cute little guy.

Grapegrl, you so totally rock! Congrats on a successful release! Speaking of squirrels, check out this picture my hubby took on a trip to chicago. Don't worry, the fuzzbutt got away. Because he knew the hawk was there. The hawk didn't have a chance...cool pic though.

Thanks, ghostie! It was a really rewarding experience and he was such a little sweetie. Love that pic you posted--what a fat little dude! We have several resident hawks here on the property and a whole family of owls out back, so our squirrels have learned to be very cautious! :p

I know what you mean. We live on a hill overlooking an highway (roadkill) so we get a lot of raptors; Hawks, Falcons, Bald Eagles and Owls. It's really interesting to see how the squirrels react when one flies over. Here's a pic of one on our deck. They're really cool! (I know raptors are only sucessful hunting 20% of the time, but I always scare them away. I don't allow hunting on my deck!) This hawk was hunting a squirrel about ten feet away and when I went to shoo him off, he ignored me because he was in "hunting mode". They're beautiful and fun to watch though...
