Yes invite the nasty critters onto your property and wait, they will wreck your house by chewing up wiring and insulation. Squirrels can start fired this way too. Never mind scaring the hell out of birds at the bird feeders. Don’t feed them by hand, they have a nasty bite and are like a rat than anything else.
I hope a cute little squirrel bites you right in the ass cheek!!
Rats are lovely animals and so are squirrels. I just hand fed a squirrel this morning and it didn’t bite me. Perhaps they can sense that you are a hateful person.
It’s a personal choice.
I’ve fed many a squirrels by hand. One did put his mouth on my finger and realized I wasn’t the good he likes and DID NOT BITE me!
The squirrels lived peacefully amongst my birds and even playe with my little dog( I have pictures).
I haven’t had any damage to my house from them, although they have taken out the electrics in the neighborhood a couple times. Other than that… I live the entertainment!
I agree, it’s a personal choice…
