In the Forest of Dean they have a squirrel problem. Apparently, vast numbers of squirrels are causing considerable damage to the forest. Consequently, they are promoting the consumption of squirrel pie as the solution to the problem. They have even gone as far as dubbing them "free range chicken of the trees". Competitions are also being held to see who can create the best squirrel burger.
I understand their concern for the well being of the countryside, but squirrels aren't the only culprits when it comes to damaging it. I wonder if the fine folk of Gloucestershire have any more solutions up their sleeves!
