Beware of the…Squirrel!

Awww, how cute right? How can these guys be harmful?  I hate to be the one to tell you this, but the squirrel’s cuteness is a trap! Don’t fall for it!

You need to be afraid of these evil little creatures.  Why you ask? Well let me give you two reasons.

Reason 1

My brother has squirrels living in the attic of his house and they run around, make a mess and are completely annoying.  Since my lovely brother has no clue how to catch these little terrors, he decided to put mouse poison in the attic and see what would happen.  The next night while he was trying to sleep, he could hear the squirrels dragging the poison block all over the attic.  There was a little hole above my brother’s bed so I am convinced that the squirrels where planning to push the block through the hole when my brother was sleeping to try and get it in his mouth! I know this is far fetched but Reason 2 is why I believe it!

Reason 2

My mom would sit at home on the farm and watch the birds fly around the deck and she would always notice Mr. Rocky.  Rocky was a squirrel that was always around the house causing trouble.  He would stuff crab apples in all the vehicles and would steal the dog’s bedding.  Those are just two examples of his annoying antics.  It was all pretty innocent until that one day…that one day that I am sure forever gave my mother nightmares.  As my mom was watching the birds she saw Rocky had a pile of bird seed and dog food on the deck but he was not really visible.  She had no clue what he was up to.  Not too long after, a little bird flew to Rocky’s pile and was still.  All of a sudden, Rocky came out of nowhere like a ninja and actually snapped the little bird’s neck and killed him! This may sound crazy, but it happened!  The squirrel was setting traps for the birds…not sure why he needed them dead but I guess he did want to steal the bird food and it would have been easier if the birds were out of the picture…oh my goodness, I am actually trying to decipher the motives of a squirrel.

People don’t realize how intelligent squirrels are and always underestimate them!  Don’t be one of them. Be afraid, be very afraid!

I would like to summarize with this…..
