    Squirrels attacking the neighborhood??? Now that's the perfect excuse I need to go a buy a new bolt-action .22LR rifle. Nonetheless, I think that in this case the squirrel might've been someone's pet in the past so he lost his fear of humans and he is just trying to play. I say throw some food and let him be the neighborhood pet.

    And the Lord spake, saying, "First shalt thou take out the Holy Pin. Then shalt thou count to three, no more, no less. Three shall be the number thou shalt count, and the number of the counting shall be three. Four shalt thou not count, neither count thou two, excepting that thou then proceed to three. Five is right out. Once the number three, being the third number, be reached, then lobbest thou thy Holy Hand Grenade of Antioch towards thy foe, who, being naughty in my sight, shall snuff it.

    Anybody remember the network news story long ago about squirrels in NYC finding discarded crack in the parks and getting high? That was funny, I don't care who you are!

    This has to be the best advice, you never know when you might encounter the deadly vorpal squirrel. (distant cousin of the well known vorpal bunny)

    Maybe it is a bit of "over-kill" pardon the expression, but my Savage 22 mag rifle with scope works very well for squirrel shooting.
    Single action but what the hey, it is very accurate and it only takes one shot. lol

    Jack Russell Terrier

    Or if you like/have room for a larger dog, An Akita.

    My Jack Russell,(B4 he ran away) would eat mice/rats, and kill squirrels.

    My buddies Akita, would KILL any animal that came into its yard.
    Possums racoons, BIRDS, YES birds, squirrels, any animal, DEAD, and he'd leave it by the corner of the house by the gate, as an offering to my friend, ( I guess)

    1. Bird feeder full of corn hanging on pole.
    2. Trashcan under bird feeder.
    3. 22 rifle and a box of CB shorts.
    4. Comfy chair in the shade & a pitcher of lemonade.

    It's endemic. You should always assume a ground squirrel has the plague, especially up near the bay area.
