Gray Squirrels: Over-cute and Over-sexed?

"Do you find me sexy, baby--do you?"

Scottish officials are worried that U.S. imported gray squirrels are outnumbering native (and endangered) red squirrels and they believe that there is only one humane solution: squirrel contraception. Newspapers have joked that gray squirrels, like American servicemen stationed in Britain in WWII, are "over-cute and over-sexed." The gray squirrel is so fertile in Scotland that there are about 3 million grays and only 160,000 red squirrels.

Squirrel contraception may seem extreme, but think of the alternative that the spokesman for South Scotland's Red Squirrel organization offered: "cranial dispatch," or "a quick and lethal blow to the head." Ouch!

It's a humane way to deal with the over-crowding of elephants in certain African nature reserves, so I'm sure it would work for squirrels, too. I just don't know how they would get their doses!
