I agree with Guy. All of us who have been members of the Tufty Club should rise up and put an end to this wanton cruelty. P.S. I happen to know that Guy is a driving instructor and is an expert on road safety, so his review is both well-informed and professional. Plus - I once tried to feed walnuts to the squirrels outside my window. Ha!

I think this recipe is cruel as Squirrels are kind & friendly creatures. They're also very cute. Maybe it's because I grew up reading "Squirrel Nutkin" books and have managed to cross the road safely ever since.

This is a joke, right? NO-ONE in their right mind eats squirrels.
