Some turning to Squirrel meat. I've ate squirrel a long time ago and don't plan to try it again unless things get extremely bad. To me these creatures are just tree rats but I guess when you are hungry enough you can eat anything and I know there are plenty of hunters that enjoy them today. I just can't get over that hump of looking at them as a tree rat but they are super intelligent tree rats.
Daddy used to talk about eating squirrel brains with eggs. Have never had it myself, but it is good to know we are blessed with food.
I only mentioned "Tree Rat" due to the fact that they are a member of the rodent family but they are far more intelligent than any of the other rodents that I am aware of and I do know they are vastly different in their diet and other areas as well.
