    Dead Squirrels in Yard

    Over the past two weeks I've found two dead squirrels in the front yard and one in the back yard. I've been here 4 years and never seen any carcasses before. I guess I'm mostly concerned about my dog eating one if they're infected with something or have been poisoned. Any ideas on what might be causing this, or course of action?

    I'll give animal control a call tomorrow and see what they say I guess.

    THIS.

    Squirrels don't transmit it, so your dog is cool. The problem is that squirrels can only get it from nearby humans. Sorry.

    $#@!in' aids!

    I doubt it's the neighbors...one side is vacant, the others would probably tell me if they were hunting, and the old lady behind me is barely able to get around.

    The neighbors do drink beer out side at 8am, so i wouldn't put it past em i guess...but when i asked him about it today, he seemed surprised...ive never seen em outside w/ anything lethal and i doubt he'd lie about it. we're on cool terms.

    one was dead in the pool the day I closed on my house. I plucked it out with a shovel and gave it a shallow grave. The next day it was gone. I never told my wife our house is built upon an old pet cemetery, but the facts speak for themselves.

    Likely some of your neighbors put some rat poison outside. Keep your dogs away from the dead squirrels or they could ingest some of the poison along with the tasty squirrel carrion.

    Squirrel zombies are next. Burn them now.

    First you'll have to pump the stomachs to see if they ate something bad within 18 hours of their demise. WEAR GLOVES. Gently massage the belly area and work your way up the esophagus until the stomach contents work themselves out. Sort through the findings and look for any poisonous berries or leaves, or illegal drugs or razor blades.

    If that doesn't identify a cause of death, clip off part of a toenail/claw and hold it up to the light. If it's mostly clear, the animal was otherwise healthy. If there's a yellow tint to it, the squirrel probably had vitamin deficiency, or he was a smoker, possibly both.

    Otherwise, check for any broken bones or large gashes.

    If nothing yet, maybe it was just getting old. Sometimes squirrels just die.

    Do you have a sign in your yard that says "Dead Squirrel Storage"?

    Yeah, it sounds like one of your neighbors is about to experience a terrible tragedy in the family.

    i'd bet someone put out some rat poison with birdseed to kill the rodents. definitely keep the dogs away.
