I had an old neighbor that hated squirrels. He had several traps for them. A couple of times a day he would load the traps up in his truck and take them down to the park for release. He did this for months and there were never any less squirrels. 

He had two major flaws in his plan. 1. The park is only maybe a 1/2 mile away. 2. Two houses down I was providing them all the food they wanted. :) (He was pissed when he found that out)

He was pissed first thing this morning but when I left for work and took the pic he was just laying there.  His eyes are open.  Release procedure is in flux at this point.:)  Put a big towel over the cage, Use channel locks to hold trap door open and poke with stick if need be.  All while holding a 38 for protection.  I'll let you know later today. 

I was talking to someone here at work and apparently we had a bunch here.  The cleaning lady went to the dumpster to dump trash and one came out for the dumpster and she freaked and fell and broke her wrist.  Cost the company $50K.  Then we paid critter control $2k to get rid of them and they trapped 22 of them.  The guy that caught them said you have drive them 100 miles out or they make their way back.  I'm hoping crossing the Missouri river will do it. 

Cross halfway and use Quillbacks rope suggestion.  Never had one come back after that journey.

Ok apparently I'm not cut out for this.  I walk back there and he just squats down real quiet like in the picture.  I threw a big blanket over the cage and put him in the truck bed.  I drove to let him loose and when I get him out of the truck and uncover him he has pulled half the blanket into the cage and now he is pissed.  He tore that blanket to shreds.  I put a zip tie on the trap door and ran a rope through it so I could walk away and open it.  He bolted.  I officially am out of the trapping business.  Trap is for sale cheap!!!
