    Grey Squirrels are technically rodents that is probably why!

    Red Squirrels are endangered also

    You'd have to go some to run down a grey squirrel. Believe me, I've tried. It jumped onto the bonnet, pulled of a wiper arm and used it to pole vault onto an overhanging branch.

    If you trap a red squirrel, you must release it as it is a protected species. If you catch a grey squirrel, you must kill it as it is classed as a pest. They also make good eating.

    Hmmm, could improve the nutritional value of school dinners as well as getting rid of a pest.

    I'm sick of those Grey's - speeding up and down our street in their Audi Chestnut's
    But also hate it when I get stuck behind a doddering Red Squirrel in a flat cap...

    Having watched a grey sit in the gutter and chew through the boards to gain access into our roof.. and been unable to prevent it... I have no time for grey squirrels at all. The damage it did before we eventually caught and killed it in a rat trap was not good

    One ran through the back wheel of my bike, locked it up sent me down the road on my backside, I was not impressed as I was on my way to do a 60 mile charity ride! Picked it out with a stick and carried on!
