Squirrel Obstacle Course

I am reckoning this is how Canadian folks entertain themselves.
Of course, I would add the extra challenge of my pellet gun.

No, no, no. You forget about the part where we sit down with the Squirrels and talk to them about Universal Health Care.

My wife loves to put out peanuts for the BlueJays, and Cardinals, and those pain in the next Squirrels have to come and hog away. Well, I got a BB gun, and have been shooting them to scare them off, and hopefully discourage them.

I only pump the gun three times before I shoot, and so I don't kill the little varmints. Yet one time I must have hit a squirrel in a soft spot, because he started squirting blood like crazy and was flopping all over. I had to go shoot him, and kill him.
I actually felt kind of bad. But my wife was happy.

Are you kidding? We do that with moose.

That's cool. Do you get a wide variety of baseball players visiting your yard over the season?

A sad commentary for a Californian: the first time I saw a squirrel hit with a bb gun, I felt sick to my stomach and tears came to my eyes - thanks to Fred's Uncle. The weird thing is that I had no idea I was going to react that way - I was actually watching with excitement! But when the little guy shook his little paw and fell to the ground... Probably due to the Public School system and hidden brainwashing during the assemblies.

Um, yeah, we do. Albert Pujols, Cito Gastin, and Tony Larussa all come by to have a peanut or two.

There were others, but I didn't recognize them.
