Scribbles and Scrambles - Squirrel Harassment - Big Time

In my hometown we claim a special squirrel fame. Does that sound weird? Let me explain...we are one of the only natural, original homes of black squirrels. No, not grey, not rust, but black.

Because we have a unique squirrel situation, we have unique squirrel protection laws.

We are not allowed to harass black squirrels.

I don't know what squirrel harassment looks like.

However, the G.I. Joes' in the picture would be in big trouble if this squirrel's fur was a few shades darker.

I have no idea where this picture originated, but honestly, I just couldn't let it pass without comment.

The moral of this story: Hmmm. Don't harass ANY squirrels. Beware of the squirrel's revenge. Don't buy G.I. Joe action figures and leave them unattended. Keep your eyes peeled for roadkill for photo opportunities.
