If you are not going to eat them don't kill them, wildlife are not targets. Squirrels are good to eat. Skin them, cut them into six pieces. the 4 legs and the body cut in half for the loins. Cut the ribs off at the top of the body.. Par boil the pieces with salt in the water and an onion quarted and a piece of celery and a carrot. when you can pass a cooking fork through the thigh easily remove them from the water and shake the pieces in a bag of flour, salt and pepper and fry in bacon fat and a little olive oil until brown and crispy. They will be crisp,on the outside and white and moist in the center.
