So? How's the Great Squirrel Hunt Going in Blighty? reading about Rod Brammer and his trusty Winchester 12 Bore out to eradicate the ' alien invaders' from the UK...He wants to kill the entire grey squirrel population [ 2 and half million bushy tailed rats ] within 12 years... Seems the fuzzy animal brigades who stopped the fox hunt can't stop this hunt [ hey, maybe the horsey set can don the reds and loose the hounds on a new quarry! ] Also on his list are magpies... Up for grabs is a $ 1200 bounty for the person who brings in the most ' tails ' [ which , no doubt, will be sold for a handsome profit to the Chicanos in Los Angeles for their whip antennas on the low riders ] So far in the lead is a gamekeeper from Bedford with 466 ' kills '.. and don't even think of ' catch and release ' with export to the Great White North where gerys are a ' protected species ' under the Fish and Wildlife Conservation Act [ seems here the buggers are good for the environment as they eat up our garbage and provide ' sustenance' for predator species ]. Will this be an election issue?.. Seems Tony the Bliar won't let hunters to take on the squirrel and magpie populations in ' urban environments ' [so no blasting the sh!t out of the fuzzy/feathered ones in city parks and rooftops - collateral damage worries, I suppose - might take out Fluffy or Mrs. Pimms in the privy by accident ].. Anyway Brammer says 12 years should wipe out the grey squirrels leaving Britain free to have its own domestic version regain its traditional territories ..He also wants to knock off 60,000 birdies by July to screw up the breeding population.. So?.. who's up for some spec ops in the local garden?
