    If that's what they want to do, what's the problem? Santa Monica certainly isn't a place to have people squirrel hunting. That wouldn't be like shooting deer in a wide open, tightly controlled airport. I bet the cost of insurance to chase squirrels around with a .22 would be a lot higher than the cost of squirrel birth control, even adding in the cost of squirrel-sized clinics to explain its proper use. The cost of the birth control is probably not that high compared to the cost of catching them, which had to be done for whatever method they were using for the capital punishment they used previously.

    I just read the article and it occurred to me that only hypochondriacs worry about bubonic plague and rabid squirrels.... have any of you EVER been viciously attacked my squirrel? Have any of you ever known anyone that's contracted the bubonic plague...especially from a squirrel?

    I think the people of SM need to start worrying about the real problems and leave the squirrels alone.

    Santa Monica is an urban, crowded city. You don't necessarily want people running around with rifles shooting things that move. They have enough of that there already!

    But squirrels are just rats with fuzzy tails, why would anyone give a rats @zz about getting rid of a few flippin squirrels?
    For gawds sake, they don't seem to be doing a lot about people in California running around shooting other people?
    You'd think with the Terminator being in the drivers seat there he would just Terminate them...
    Personally, I absolutly hate the little vermin, they chew the buds off my orchids, eat all the seed I put out for the birds along with a host of other undesirable traits.
    The only positive thing I have ever found about a squirrel is they tend to be rather tasty with a good gravy...........

    They were here first we just gave them a nice place to live... its our fault... we should control them in the highly populated area... like say making a squirl sanctuary... and stash nuts with opiates in their stashes of nuts... that would save the people allot of time... cause they wouldn't have to worry about the squirles being angry except when they need their fix...

    Well, the concept is pretty cuckle-worthy, but when you think about it, there is some rhyme to the reason. For starters, as Bruce mentioned, shooting the squirrels in Santa Monica... Yeah... That one aint gonna fly. Second, that does absolutely nothing about the animal rights people. Third, this way you CONTROL the population, you don't just quell it so it can boom right back up. From what I gather, this is more of a stabilization technique. There's ~1000 squirrels, and it's gonna stay around there without the fluctuations/dangers of using guns to kill some of 'em.


    I just read the article and it occurred to me that only hypochondriacs worry about bubonic plague and rabid squirrels.... have any of you EVER been viciously attacked my squirrel? Have any of you ever known anyone that's contracted the bubonic plague...especially from a squirrel?
    Dude, it's all about the raccoons. They know where to bite on a getleman for rrr... maximum effect. My dad got bitten by one (on the toe, thank heaven) and he had to get the rabies shots. Uncool.

    Besides, IIRC, there's now a cure for the bubonic plague (if not very good treatment.) Still not something I'd want to get.

    "Personally, I like squirrels"... Yes, only in CA! Actually, you probably couldn't pull this off outside Santa Monica or Beverly Hills. Personally, I like squirrel pelts

    if they give the female birth control to the males will we have transvestite squirrels?
    That will not be a big problem Rattler. This is California, Remeber? The government will just pay for a sex change operation.
