Far be it from me to find fault with our furry, feral friends from the forest, but something needs to be done. Am I suggesting that we grab our shotguns, run outside, and hunt them to extinction? Of course not. All I'm saying is that there's a slight possibility that I might be a little slow to react when I see one of those things dart out in front of my car.
Squirrels, I'd be extra-cautious out there if I were you. You know, just in case.
