The only thing worse than plague is squirrels with plague

Not a plague of squirrels either…squirrels with plague…it must be the end times.

A second Yosemite National Park campground will be shut down for five days after a pair of dead squirrels were found to be infected with the plague, US park and public health officials say.

The closure of Tuolumne Meadows Campground comes a week after a child who camped elsewhere in Yosemite, one of America’s top tourist destinations, was hospitalised with the disease.

The case marked the first time a human was known to be infected with the centuries-old scourge, which is carried by rodents and the fleas that live on them, in California since 2006.

The campground will be closed from Monday through Friday of next week based on “new evidence of plague activity in animals,” Karen Smith, director of the California Department of Public Health, said.    Read more »

Time to nail some beaver

Apparently beaver and squirrels are a contributor to global warming.

The Greens want to cull our milk herds in order to save the planet.

I wonder how they will react if we all start going after beaver and squirrels?

Arctic ground squirrels churn up and warm soil in the Tundra, releasing carbon dioxide, while methane released by beavers contributes 200 times more methane than they did 100 years ago, scientists say

Rodents such as squirrels and beavers are contributing far more to global warming than previously thought, forcing climate scientists to alter the models they use to chart how the world is warming up.

Arctic ground squirrels churn up and warm soil in the Tundra, releasing carbon dioxide, while methane released by beavers contributes 200 times more methane than they did 100 years ago, according to scientists from the American Geophysical Union.

Faeces and urine produced by rodents are speeding up the release of carbon from the permafrost, the vast store of greenhouses spanning the Arctic Circle, researchers found.

Dr Sue Natali, from the AGU, said “We know wildlife impacts vegetation, and we know vegetation impacts thaw and soil carbon.   Read more »

Man stabbed with a squirrel for forgetting to bring beer home

This woman has anger issues…she is the reverse Jake the Muss…instead of demanding some eggs be fixed she demanded beer and when she didn’t get any she stabbed her partner with a squirrel.

A South Carolina woman was arrested Wednesday for stabbing her common-law husband in the chest with a ceramic squirrel. His offense? Returning home without beer on Christmas Eve.

Helen Ann Williams, 44, of Charleston, S.C., has been charged with criminal domestic violence of a high and aggravated nature after police responded to a 911 call from the victim. She’s also being charged—in the court of public opinion—for decorating her home with ceramic rodents.  Read more »

Game Recipes, Ctd

I reckon a TV show where I travel the country, plus a few overseas stops looking at great game recipe, cooked by ordinary people in ordinary circumstances using tasty game animals would be great. Animals that of course had been hunted and killed by my or their own hands. Certainly no gay cookery bullshit with chefs and ponces. A show sort of like this: Meateater

Here is a recipe for Squirrel Melts, they look delicious.
