    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.

    Somewhere I have a picture of a squirrel hanging on to the screen on our back door, about 5 feet off the ground. It was trying to get to the hummingbird feeder we had hanging off the eaves just outside the door. Squirrels love our backyard since it has so many birdfeeders, but when we let Sadie, our beaglador, outside she clears the yard of squirrels real quick! She hasn't caught one yet, but came close a few times.

    I once trained a family of scrub jays to take peanuts and sunflower seeds from my hand.

    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.

    Those living next to Alan should sign a disclaimer when they move in. Not responsible for any damages caused by flying squirrel due to dynamite blasting.

    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.
