Squirrel crawls out of Winnipegger's toilet
Winnipeg Free Press ^ | June 14, 2013 | Oliver Sachgau

Posted on 06/14/2013 11:51:29 AM PDT by heartwood

Most people prefer not to look at the contents of their toilet, but a St. James woman had no choice when the contents of her toilet tried to escape. Angela Campbell said her dogs were acting strange early Wednesday morning. She started hearing loud noises coming from the toilet. "It basically sounded like a bowling ball flopping inside of a toilet. The things I was envisioning in my head were monsters," she said. When she went and opened the toilet, she discovered not monsters, but a squirrel clinging to the bowl and smelling extremely bad, she said. "It basically was caked with whatever was inside the pipes, from wherever it was coming from," she said. Campbell said she removed the squirrel out using barbecue tongs and washed the creature in the bathtub. The animal was very docile, she said.

I know what she means; I have occasionally looked into mine and said, “Whew... that was a monster...”

“It basically sounded like a bowling ball flopping around inside a toilet.”

There’s the next Winter Olympic sport.

The animal was very docile, she said.

I would guess so if he let her pick him up with tongs and wash the shiite off of him.

Probably how curling was invented, back when everyone in Winnipeg had an outhouse.

I had a house that had a secondary stack vent under the back porch. That is, a couple of feet off the ground, iirc.

Can't remember if it was screened. You'd think I'd remember, since I had to remove a bird's nest from the bathroom exhaust vent. A neighbor had had the same problem, and gave me enough screen mesh to enclose the exhaust vent cover.

Then again, I discovered stack vent while doing electrical work, and it wasn't a pleasant place to be...

FWIW, the house was built ~1906.

I remember a river rat splashing around in a toilet one time in W. Va.. The lid was down on the toilet and I heard some splashing around so lifted the lid. BIG MISTAKE! The rat looked up at me, hissed and showed its sharp teeth, leaped up on the toilet seat and was ready for battle! I screamed, jumped out of the bathroom and could barely talk. I told my sister there is a mouse in the toilet. She went back there with the dogs and leaped up on the washer. “That’s not a mouse. That’s a d@@@mn rat!” She said the rat was leaping to the ceiling when the dogs came in. (a BIG German Shepherd and a SMALL mut.) They got it and later someone told me the toilet did not have a trap in it. ALWAYS LOOK BEFORE YOU SIT DOWN!!!

Must have been the practice in that era. My house was built 97 years ago and the stack vent cover is down at ground level by the front porch. Fortunately someone welded the cover on REEEEEEAL GOOD.

The AA baseball team in Richmond, VA is called the Flying Squirrels.

Perhaps the Winnipeg team should change its name to the Stinky Squirrels?

Mamma T's first husband's trust fund paid for her private (Gulfstream) jet that was named "The Flying Squirrel". I've heard she changed the name of it in the past couple of years.

I wonder if she keeps it at Dulles, and if she originally named it after the AA team?

Luckily the moose stayed in the main line.

The moose should have told you to stay in the pipe.

I had a dead one in the toilet just a few months ago. Figure it came in through the vent pipe from the roof - used to be a squirrel that would knock on the pipe until I chased him off - guess he finally got in. Hope he enjoyed the trip cause it didn’t end well for him.
