Squirrel Pie Anyone.

This goes to show that if you work hard enough then you can make a business out of just about anything. Well done to him

Knew someone would beat me in posting this story this morning - it was in the Metro too.

Sounds like he's wanting interested landowners down south who are willing to let him come and cull the greys on their land

Some game dealers in my area are charging .30p more per head for grey squirrel than per head of rabbit!!

Many moons ago in London's own forest, Epping. There was a bounty paid on Grey Squirrel tails. People were worried about Greys even then.

Grey tree rat is very tasty barbequed as well!

I remember the bounty for the grey when i was a kid, it was 50 per tail,you also got 5p per rat tail.

There was an old man with an old used shopping trolly that used to come round every Sunday morning to the village that i stayed in and bought the rat tails from you, for whatever reason i don't know.

I don't know why TF but in my minds eye I'd imagined you as being a youngster but this post of yours has made me reassess you. I just about remember there being a bounty on rats tails, so that means you might be as long in the tooth as me.
