Those wacky Brits are at it again. England has a squirrel problem according to The New York Times (including some sort of war-like situation in “Squirreltown”), and to deal with said problem it’s becoming more popular to eat squirrels. Not all squirrels are getting devoured…only grey squirrels. Red squirrels are spared from the dinner table. Oh, and here is another Times article about eating squirrel.
