We have a number of grey squirrel's in our area with traces of red in their fur. Could this be a throw-back from possible inter-breeding!.

It all seems to be about culling nowadays, and possibly wiping out a species. Hedgehogs, badgers,crayfish, mink etc.

There's loads of grey squirrels living in a bit of woodlands & stream where I used to walk to work, before taking my leave. Absolutely loads of them and not scared at all, they came within inches of me on the footpath.

How about a culling programme to reduce the human population? I'm sure many other species would benefit.

They are expecting free food hand-outs, that is why they are very tame. Word of warning, they can inflict a nasty bite which can contain many germs, that may require urgent medical attention. Wouldn't recommend taking a baby or young child in these areas, unless the parent/carer are extremely watchful.

Why do people think that culling one animal will save another?

Utter stupidity.

Badgers and cows, predatory birds and song birds, foxes and chickens,

The list goes on, sometimes i dispair.

where we live grey squirrels are nice to watch but also a real pest, they break into roofs chew through cables, bury hazel nuts everywhere resulting in hazel tree's sprouting up all over the garden. I would not cull them, but would like them relocated in large numbers to reduce the damage risk.

I have always considered gray squirrels to be vermin. Just because they seem to be nice and cute and cuddly people want to protect them.

It is just the same with rabbits, again just vermin. If these people thought that rats were nice and cute and cuddly would they also want to protect them?

Hope you're not chopping down these Hazel Trees ;)

given the chance a red squirrel would probably do the same damage ;(
