Freehold Attorney Fined $2,500 for Trapping, Drowning Squirrels
I just use a 17hmr.
Maybe Patricia F. should shut her own trap.
Un-flippin believable. Luckily for me, my wife knows how to keep her mouth shut about such things.
You can’t shoot your gun in suburban NJ, so how do you hunt squirrels? I would have fined him for failing to eat what he killed. One of my relatives has a freezer full of squirrel meat.
And if he doesn’t divorce his wife he’s an idiot.
There’s no community property in NJ, so he should do well in the financial settlement.
Those little buggers can definitely do some damage to a house. I have first hand experience with that. I still trap them if I see evidence they are trying to gnaw their way back into our house but release them in a wooded area 5 or so miles away.
The damage they can do is pretty incredible. I once read that a sizable amount of all house fires are believed to be started by squirrels (gnawing on wiring etc..). Don`t know if that is true but it wouldn`t suprise me.
A squirrel has more rights than the average citizen of NJ.
Rodent have been elevated above humans, even at the state level.
Yep they can board a plane without a pat down. Rodents and moslems rodents

The cable and electric companies have to run new lines to my house every 3 or 4 years. Squirrels strip the insulation down to bare wire. When there is about a foot of bare wire exposed, the utilitiy guys are aut there replacing the wires and cables.
The dog also fixed the groundhog invasion, with prejudice.
There are traps designed to do just this. What is the crime?
“Yep they can board a plane without a pat down. Rodents and moslems rodents”
Nah ... someone at the TSA would have to see their nuts.
It's still just an animal legally though for crying out loud!
Next it will be a crime just to eat meat.
Great! Help spread potential disease carriers...
I think there are laws against about doing stuff like that.
I can empathize with rodents attacking your abode. Years ago, a neighbor gave me grief for taking care of rodents attacking the then-wife's garden.
And what did she do when squirrels started to eat into her house? Commercial strength poisoned bait.
“LOL! But how do squirrels compare with average NJ citizens in other respects?”
You make a good point. The fine is fair. ;)
Aren’t you glad you moved to NH? Too bad we couldn’t bring Christie along, too.
