Red Squirrels “Chatter” at Hunters

Red Squirrels “Chatter” at Hunters

How cute is this little red squirrel? He (or she) was in fact very aggressive and hissed and grabbed with its teeth as I was trying to get it to pose for this photo. Our wildlife expert, Leo Dupont explained to me these 7 ounce critters can in fact take down a family of grey squirrels. Also, the men who hunt were saying they will sit up in the tree and “chatter” at them for being in their territory. One hunter said they even shake the oak trees causing acorns to fall on you. Now that is clever. Red squirrels have been known to “tap” maple trees for the sap. They are very dangerous when cornered so removal should be left to the professionals. Need wildlife trapped?
