A worldwide alert has gone out. Six squirrels are on the loose and considered armed and dangerous.
The Wild Bird Journal has all the facts on these felonious furballs, and we'll do whatever we can to stop their rampage across the continent.
Just who are these buck-toothed bandits?
How did these "squirrels gone wild" make it on the list?
What can we do to stop them? Let’s take a look.
AMERICA'S MOST WANTED SQUIRRELS
No. 6) Suki “Star” Yakuza
Mixing a ninja with a squirrel has created a nearly unstoppable
peanut thief. She may have an insatiable hunger,
but now there’s something to keep her at bay,
and it even matches her all-black wardrobe.
No. 5) Pablo “Picante” Escobaro
This guy is absolutely nuts, but they do say
you are what you eat! Instead of putting him
behind bars, we decided it’s best to do that
with the bird feeder he’s always trying to bust into.
No. 4) Nick “Hard-Head” Desjardins
This guy just won’t quit. He sees his target – your bird feeder –
and goes at it again and again. If he’s successful, you’re
not gonna be happy. Why not make an
investment in an even tougher security system?
No. 3) “Greasy George” Gordon
“Greasy George” earned his nickname from an unfortunate incident
with a greased bird feeder pole back in the old neighborhood.
Since then, he’s gotten smarter, but not smart enough.
You can beat him at his own game — with this!
No. 2) Riku “Mad Dog” Muranka
Muranka’s bark is worse than his bite. He’ll curse you out
every time he fails to break in to this bird feeder, but
he’ll never make it. He just keeps falling flat on his face.
No. 1) “No Name” Johnnie Doe
He’s got no name. He’s got no record.
But we’ve got another set of “No’s” for this serial offender –
A feeder worthy of his name and guaranteed
to keep him on the straight and narrow!
