Tell animal lovers not to read, and what do I do? Read.
Here in the south, it's pretty common to eat squirrel and go squirrel hunting (something I can't do - I like the furry little things), especially with the previous generation. My Papo (grandfather) has a handful of stories and recipes regarding squirrels in Mississippi.
I remember growing up as a kid, and training the backyard squirrels to come take a nut out of my hand. Only took a few days to do, mainly by tapping the pecan, or other nut on the concrete porch.

My dad was originally from N. Carolina, so we squirrel hunted and ate many squirrel recipes when I was a little jeeter. After I reached 14 or so I no longer had the heart to shoot the squirrels.
(So I switched to dynamite!!!)

You must not ever have heard of squirrel brain gravy. It is mainly a regional dish in Kentucky. They scramble squirrel brains in a white gravy.~Michelle

I think I had squirrel soup once. Taste like chicken soup but I was clueless.

Not to derail (much), but this topic made me think of our loser president and how he played with frogs when he was young. Sorry, nothing on his habits with local squirrels appeared in the original New York Times piece.
