Doesn't that make you think of the dog from 'UP'? I used to think squirrels were kind of cute. That was until they did this to my home:
Yes, that is a 4" x 2" hole in my front wall. I am not a happy camper. Did you know it is illegal to kill squirrels in NY? They are considered 'wildlife'. When the 'wildlife' crosses the line and enters my home, I now consider it a trespasser, and not a harmless one. Check out what they've done to the inside of our wall:
Chew marks on the joists - that wall is white because they are making their way through the 5/8" thick drywall. And that grey 'round' thing in the back that you see is NOT a bucket. It is a fluffy squirrel tail. The gutter pulled away and then those little rascals found their way in. I found this picture on this website aptly named the 'Shooter's Log.'
I really just want it to end!! Will keep you posted as to the progress! The gloves are off!!
