Geoff Horth, enraged by the squirrel biting his two-year-old grand-daughter Kelsi Morley on the face, took up his airgun and hunted down the rogue rodent, the Sun newspaper said on Friday. "When I tracked him down I was surprised how big he was. He came down a tree and headed for me, but I shot him before he jumped," the 61-year-old school caretaker told the newspaper. The bad-tempered squirrel's reign of terror in the town of Knutsford in central England had made parents frightened to let their children out to play. Animal experts say it is very unusual for squirrels to behave in such an aggressive way toward humans. Horth was philosophical about his role as gun-totting local hero. "Its a shame he went nuts, but I couldn't let this little beggar hold the town to ransom," he told the newspaper. --- Perhapse the squirrel was in need oh phyciatric help?

Oh, that's just precious. Man who blows away a furry tree rodent = hero. Man blows away asshole trying to kill him or someone else = vigilante. I'm telling you, it's the damn tea. That's what you get when you boil something meant to be enjoyed slowly over ice. I heard of a woman from Texas that was going to England on holiday. She was stopped and detained for possession of a replica firearm, her earrings. They were little silver pistols. She was treated like she had stepped off the plane with a bazooka. No wonder their women nailed as many Americans as they could during the two world wars. They wanted MEN damnit.

All the Brits that were worth a damn either got killed off in WW1/WW2 or are passing from old age now. Or else they move to the US to get away from the UK's socialism.

Well you got to remember this is a country that took away any rights for a citizen to own firearms! So armed with an air rifle was probably gonna cost him some time! Right on Gramps! Bob [:D]

Squirrel with an air rifle? That's cojones man! I don't go after them with anything less than my .338 winmag--I leave the evil black rifle at home cuz Jeff Cooper said the poodle gun won't stop dangerous game. In these parts [u]Sciurius niger[/u] and [u]carolinensis[/u] have HUGE FANGS.
