They’re nasty and I wouldn’t want to be anywhere near them when they’re released from a catch and return..er.. release program.. He might come around.
My house has granite steps and field stone walls (c1850), and chipmunks have wreaked havoc causing portions of the wall to collapse and need to be rebuilt. Grey squirrels have chewed into soffits and peak vents causing $1000’s in damage to repair, repaint, reinforce/armor with sheetmetal & hardware cloth, and flying squirrels have nested in the attic. Not to mention paying $350 to a “Critter Control” service just to have one nesting grey female and her litter of pups caught and removed. In my state it’s illegal to catch and relocate animals, even pest species. They need to be destroyed, so “have a heart” is really “have a dunk”.
Pesting of these destructive critters is what actually got me back into airgunning. I can buy a lot of pellets for $350.
