Put Down That Dynamite — This Squirrel is Protected


No matter how much those squirrels may be bothering you, you’re going to have to resort to means other than heavy explosives if you want to get rid of them. That’s the case, at least, if you live in Connecticut.

Sec. 26-88 of the Connecticut Code states, “No person shall take or attempt to take any gray squirrel, rabbit or other fur-bearing animal protected by law by the use of gunpowder, dynamite or other explosive compound, or by fire, smoke, brimstone, sulphur, gas or chemical, or by digging from any hole or den, provided nothing herein shall be construed to prevent the shooting of any gray squirrel or rabbit or fur-bearing animal.”
