The Great Hilliard Street Squirrel Massacre of 2015

Get a pro? I'd want the pro who got the 11 squirrels, though their lives rate higher in the poster's mind than "rats/racoons". I'll leave it to the reader to assess the implied value of life of "dogs/cats/kids".

And how do we know it was poison? Personally, I suspect some young Jem got himself a BB gun after watching To Kill a Mockingbird just down the street in Harvard Square last weekend.

This squirrel harvest does make you wonder what's on the menu at Darwin's, the sandwich shop at the end of the street:
"The Hilliard... Smoked Turkey Breast, Dill Harvarti, Dijon Mustard, Lettuce and Tomato $8.30."
The counter staff at Darwin's have been rude to me for 20 years, so I spit rhetorically in their food. Dijon mustard, it's Grey Squirrel Poupon.

There are new high powered air rifles. You can even put silencers on them. They charge them with Scuba or paint ball canisters. Squirrels are reportedly quite tasty.
I think it is eating cats and dogs that really get you into the disgusting territory.
