Rabid Squirrel or Stuffing Stealer? by 


Enquiring minds want to know.

This fella was making daily trips ripping the stuffing out of my chair in my back yard. I caught him red handed, but I feared he my be rabid instead.

    LOL, this cracks me up. Having had lots of things used as nesting material by sqrlz, I feel your pain. Squirrels don’t carry rabies!!

  • Thank you Kay! I did not realize squirrels could not carry rabies so I looked it up. It turns out that they rarely do, but they can carry it. You are closer to being right than I was, but it made for a good caption!

    Ha! not taking my word for it huh? LOL They can “technically” carry it. As an old squirrel rehabber we would tell everyone who asked that squirrels wouldn’t survive an attack from a rabid animal.
    In NC we could not legally rehab skunks, bats, foxes or raccoons because of rabies. >k<

    This is a funny one. We don’t have them doing this but they do ring the doorbell for more peanuts if I take to long to get more out there. They are characters, This is a great shot~ Peechez
