Been Shootin Squirrels Since the 1950's

web posted July 1, 2014

JOHNSTON A Johnston woman called police to complain about finding a dead squirrel on her porch Sunday morning. When the officer arrived she told him that a neighbor living behind her has been shooting the squirrels and she is tired of finding dead squirrels on her property. The officer went to the next street and met with the 78-year-old man who admitted everything.

The elderly man said he shoots the squirrels and has been doing so at his house since the 1950's and has always had permission. The officer asked is he had talked to Police Chief Chris Aston for permission and he stated "no".

The officer asked if the man had applied to the Department of Natural Resources for a permit to shoot the squirrels as a nuisance and he stated "no".

When informed that he would need to take the above steps in order to continue shooting the squirrels the man said that was too much trouble and he would just stop shooting them.

The officer cleared the call and no charges were filed.

Call it a hunch, but for some reason we doubt that his squirrel shooting days are over just yet.
