Kill the little grey bastards!

But only if they’re in Scotland or Cumbria, I quite enjoy watching the ones in the city. Grey squirrels moving North of the border are carrying Squirrel Pox, which the local reds have no immunity to.

Red squirrels with the virus will suffer skin ulcers, lesions and scabs, with swelling and discharge around the eyes, mouth, feet and genitals.
