    Toss it and get another skin. Squirrels are too plentiful to attempt fixing that.

    i thought about it but this squirrel had some neat features, 5 inch tail, only two toes on the back foot, and a huge scar on its back

    George The older I get, the better I was.

    Obviously "Fuzzy" led a rough life to begin with. Personally, I'd do him a favor and not make him exhibit it in death. I'd toss him out.

    I shot one with a 270 ballistic tip once, funny thing is I never found much of it...


    We used to bark shoot them with 50 cal black powder rifles several years ago. That was alot of fun. I still take my 32 caliber black powder out tree rat hunting once in awhile.

    Send it to Gee Whiz. He would have it done in 2 hours for $65. Think of the profit margin.
