I have to jump in and say something about this situation which is shaping up to make for a good Faulkneresque short story. And yes John, there are strange people everywhere but here in the south seem to have more than our fair share. We tend to kindly call them “colorful” rather than crazy in keeping with our sense of gentility. But they are crazies nonetheless. Mr. Faulkner, a former local writer in our town, made a lot of good living writing about them. Trust me; he had a target rich environment to work with.
That said, I have found that the presence of raccoons makes for easy disposal of squirrel remains. I used to bury the corpses of my squirrel eradication efforts in shallow, unmarked graves in my backyard only to find the tombs empty the next morning. I am certain that the local raccoon population, as well as any feral cats patrolling the grounds, were enjoying a nice, albeit dusty, meal. I retired my grave digger shovel and saved myself, and the raccoons and cats, a lot of needless effort. Tossing the carcasses into the deep woods behind our home provided a quick, easy and irreverent memorial service.
Mike, I would highly recommend this method of disposal. I know John strongly disagrees with feeding any wildlife but in my case serving up meals to certain scavengers has proved a very effective disposal method.
