www.squirrels.org/t_faq: 'In the United States the largest concentration of squirrels is in Washington, D.C. Specifically, in Lafayette Park across from the White House... Squirrels are considered vermin'
There are two types of squirrels: Grey ground squirrels (that are vermin basically) and red tree ones (which, while still vermin, tend to do the cute stuff like beg for peanuts at the park).
This one's the bastard child of a grey and red.
The squirrels tease my dogs so my dogs chase them and about once a year they catch one and shake it like a Polaroid and kill it.
The squirrels eat my house to get into the attic so when they bring me a dead squirrel I treat them like kings.
