Meanwhile, if you catch a squirrel, about the most humane way to kill it is
to shoot it in the trap with some light sort of ammunition, taking care not
to wreck the trap. I've done this hundreds of times. Squirrel stew
surpasses any other kind I've eaten. Here in Florida, we have one endangered
squirrel species, the fox squirrel, and we just have to put up with the
damage as of course we are glad that theyare still around.. Most species,
especially in urban and suburban areas, are at infestation levels due to
removal of their natural predators. If you don't eat meat, you might know a
hungry student who does.
