Oh, squirrels don't carry rabies. The little bugger ran across my foot and scratched me while I was shooing it out the house, so I've learned that piece of info from the doctor.
But I got him back. Was pouring a liner down the chimney, since it wasn't lined, and a squirrel came up out the space. It was concreteatized. Ran across the roof and jumped for the tree, fell 5' short and hit the ground running.
OH yeah, them bugger can take a hit and keep goin'. Chase one up a utiliy pole once and act like you are going up too after it. I tried it once, that damn thing jumped from about 25+ foot up, landed on the street and took off like a bullet. It was great
