    I think it is funny and I seriously doubt the squirrel was harmed in any way. If I know squirrels, it will come right back and try it again.

    Cruelty. We shouldn't eat meat our wear fur or leather either. Animals have rights too! Especially squirrels!





    I would have done the same thing XD

    As much of an animal lover as I am I'd say the opinion of the squirrel not being hurt is probably accurate.

    So, it's comedy.

    Besides, the squirrel was trespssing .... we shoot folks for that kinda stuff in Texas. Not just out of a giant slingshot either ;)

    At times I think squirrels were put on earth for amusement purposes.:supergrin:

    They are pretty smart and extremely persistant.

    But speaking as one of the original internet squirrel launchers (had to keep it less than 1.4MB so it would fit on a floppy disk and I needed a 'bridge' to get it off the video cam-corder into computer stuff) It found it's way onto the internet via floppy disks being passed along until somebody had the technology back then to upload it.

    I know that the squirrel in question was not hurt at all, and there was a strip of weather stripping foam on the leading edge of the thower as cushioning. Landed in the snow and was back up on the deck railing in less than 5 minutes after more peanuts. But it wouldn't ever go back on the clay pigeon thower!:supergrin:

    Using animals in a cruel way for entertainment is a horrid thing.

    It's the type of American engineering and comedic ingenuity that keeps us competitive with Toyota, Sony, and the rest of the world.
