I've confirmed that I have one flying squirrel in my attic, and I assume where there's one, there will be more. I've set up a Hav-a-heart trap and am waiting for my first catch.

The question then becomes what to do with the critter. I don't want to bother with driving 30 miles to relocate, and I want to be sure that I've cleared them all out before sealing up their entry point, which I've identified.

I have no moral problem with dispatching these animals, but would like to do it quickly, humanely, and without getting too dirty.

Any suggestions? Would a small drowning tub be the most humane method of dispatching these critters?
