Grey Squirrels Unhappy At Rise In Grey Squirrel Meat Consumption

The Guardian reports that the meat of hunted Grey Squirrels is rising rapidly in popularity.Killing the rodent for food is seen as both ethical and good for the environment, as reducing Grey Squirrel numbers helps their embattled Red Squirrel cousins.

Grey Squirrels are reputedly less than pleased with these developments, and point out that they have tufty tails and are able to perform a variety of endearing behaviours. Red Squirrel sources are also ambivalent. "If humans develop a taste for squirrel-meat", commented a well-respected Red Squirrel, "then none of us will be safe".

The anti-grey/pro-red faction are pretty bloodthirsty, alright.

However I hear there are now black squirrels about, who are fucking ninjas or something, apparently. those squirrel-eaters better watch their backs...

These black squirrels seem to be just a breed of grey squirrels.

Carsmile, the FT post you link to sports one of the most repulsive images I have ever seen.

Also too scared to follow that link after your comment. What was it?

It's a skinned squirrel about to be cooked. As a meat person, you will probably look at it and go "NOM NOM NOM".
