Obnoxious Squirrel Haters

Last year some obnoxious anti-squirrel fanatic in response to one of my old squirrel websites was ranting about how squirrels apparently cause millions of dollars of damage to pecan trees and he has to shoot them. When I responded to ask where he gets this information, he responds back calling me names and insulting my intelligence. Still no references to the figures of millions of dollars lost.

Now, even if squirrels "damaged" pecan crops, it wouldn't really matter because squirrels and pecan trees have been part of the ecosystem in the US long before man has arrived.

I also tried to tell him about Native Americans and how they make good examples of stewards of the land, particularly the Sioux Indians, since I've read books by a Sioux in regards to environmental stewardship. You know what this moron says in response? Something shockingly idiotic: "The Sioux never seen a pecan tree." Wow. What ignorance some white trash have. Did you know the word "pecan" has Native American origins? Yes, Algonquian to be exact. The Sioux are another tribe, but they have certainly been around pecan trees FAR LONGER than this inbred white trash's ancestors.

As typical of many ultra-conservative tea-baggers, he assumed I was liberal simply because I love animals. Ironically, he was using liberal language in an attempt to describe how liberal he thinks I am.

For some reason, this issue is still bothering me so I thought I'd vent. I have the guy's email address (won't publish it here), but if anyone wants to tell him how ignorant he is, I'd be glad to share it individually.

Anyone who hates squirrels is crazy. I've known animal lovers who come from all shades of the political spectrum, left, right, center, and everywhere in between. Squirrels are beautiful animals that God created for us to have something beautiful to look at. So what is that guy's problem? He's probably just looking for a fight. Write him off.

Some people are just idiots. Squirrels eat nuts. It's like saying humans shouldn't eat chocolate bars because they break them.

I agree with what you said with one exception - could you please not lump all Texans into one stupid group? I'm a native Texan, I have many pecan trees on my property and we have a lot of squirrels also. We like the squirrels and have never harmed even one. I very much enjoy having a morning coffee early on weekend days sitting on my back porch watching the squirrels & birds busily going about their business.

I just wanted you to know not all Texans are alike. As a matter of fact, I bet that guy is not a native Texan; a transplant from somewhere else now giving Texas a bad name. I hope a squirrel bites his nose.

Why are people squirrel haters??? It's stupid when people hate animals for their basic nature, like when deer eat gardens. Would you rather get rid of all animals and just have people? Really? I am way pro-squirrel and pro-animal and would prefer animal company to human company most of the time!
