For those of you that own a home, you probably know that squirrels can be pesky rodents. They can cause a number of problems, chewing up wiring, eating vegetables from the garden, and even make their way into attics. In order to defend against these annoying creatures, humans have developed a number of different strategies to catch and even kill squirrels.
BB guns, electric fences, and fence traps are just a few of the weapons that humans regularly use to remove squirrels from their property. But, there are some squirrels that are simply uncatchable.
