It Strikes Me Funny

Suckers for Peanut Butter

["Squirrel bait: One more ingredient needed"]

In three days of trapping I've caught nine squirrels. All nine are now playing with old and new buddies in a larger green space on the other side of the Thames River. 

 ["Ready for action"]

["Hmmm. I smell something loverly"]

My secret weapon is a dab of peanut butter smeared on top a carrot. And a humane trap. I've noticed squirrels stop foraging in the lawn and sniff the air when peanut butter is nearby. Then they approach the trap with curiosity.

What happens next? Stay tuned.
