If you’ve been in [tag-self]real estate[/tag-self] for any length of time, you’ve dealt with these frisky little furballs on steroids that some people view as darling squirrels.
Squirrels can wreck havoc if they get inside one of your [tag-tec]houses[/tag-tec] and can possibly set a [tag-ice]property[/tag-ice] on fire by chewing through wires. Don’t get me started.
Not to mention the fact they are rodent cousins and can spread diseases such as the bubonic plague.
But leave it to the progressive folks in Berkley, CA to come up with a solution that’s well, unusually politically correct.
They’re injecting problem squirrels with birth control.
And now Santa Monica is following with their own immuno-contraceptive developed especially for the cute critters who were considered much too adorable to euthanize.
“Only in a city like Santa Monica would you expect this kind of behavior,” resident/ jogger Mike Sheldon said recently. “Even our squirrels are living on the progressive edge.”
So do you reckon it would work for some problem Tennessee raccoons?
