I got up this morning with the intention of getting rid of the squirrel. After a brief discussion with Jamie we agreed that throwing it into the woods was the best option. I decided to take my shovel and rake and scoop the dead animal up, march into the woods and catapult it as far as I could.
All was going as planned, the scoop was flawless, get out of the crawl place with it was relatively smooth as was the walk to the wooded back yard. Then the catapult, it had a high arc and I felt done, until, it got stuck in the tree. Now, I had a dead squirrel stuck in the branches of a tree in my back yard. I used the rake to knock it down, which took several tries. The second catapult had similar results. I finally ended up just setting it on the ground just into the edge of the woods line.
It was quite a morbidly comedic event.
