Across the main road, Hillcrest, was Southern Methodist University (SMU). I decided to take a look at the squirrels over there. Sadly, I saw a dead doe on the sidewalk there, perhaps a victim of an internal parasite. There was no sign of blood or predation. Other than that, SMU has a pretty good population of fox squirrels; I saw at least 20. I managed to get some pictures of these squirrels. Below is the only picture that came out okay.

I am going to be visiting the scene of the squirrel massacre. I will be at the 3400 block of University Blvd in Dallas on Monday, July 9, to see if I find anything unusual or suspicious. Even though this happened almost 20 months ago, it is still worth a look. It is sad that the police aren't sure if a crime was even committed... well, of course a crime was committed! And I'm going over there to solve it.
The following are, or should be, considered criminal activity in this case:
- Hunting within city limits
- Discharging a firearm in a residential neighborhood
- Verbal and emotional harrassment via Internet media
- Intimidating and angering people by using dead animals as props
- Animal cruelty (if squirrels were still alive during the nailing)
- Drug use (anyone involved in the above is obviously on drugs)

I believe the possible suspects are "Snake" and "Wolf", the anti-squirrel fanatics who verbally and emotionally harrassed members of the Yahoo group SquirrelLovers, and created the ill-fated Varmit Poontang blog. Their real names are uncertain, but they sometimes went by Brad and Jarrod, respectively, on the Yahoo group. The harrassing comments they made happened between October 2005 and January 2006. Their "Varmit Poontang" blog was active between November 2005 and June 2006. After that time, fortunately, these two seemed to disappear. Hopefully it is because they have been arrested (perhaps for other crimes) and are rotting in prison already. My suspicion that "Snake" and "Wolf" are the suspects in this crime stem from the fact that the incident took place during the peak of their harrassing and blogging, which also took place in Dallas. Could be a coincidence, but any additional information on this case or on these two individuals would be much appreciated.
