I happened to google this topic and discovered a few years ago, that a NJ man was fined $2500 for trapping and drowning squirrels on his own property. Apparently necropsies were done on the squirrel carcasses (probably on the taxpayer's dime). Anyway, I also live in NJ, and I occasionally trap squirrels. I live in a condo, and I only go after them using a cage trap on my own patio. My worst fear is that some nut job animal rights activist is going to call the police on me. Does anyone know what law or regulation I'm violating by doing this? The story I read made no sense to me; after all, why the hell would my local Home Depot sell the Hava-Hart trap to me if I couldn't use it?

Here's a link to more squirrel removal information and pictures from Rid-A-Critter, an Atlanta animal control company.
