Pellet gun sighted in ~20' - CHECK
Squirrel on roof 10' from back door - CHECK
Quietly open back door, shoot squirrel in head - CHECK
Dead squirrel rolls off roof - CHECK
One left. The little one was nosing around the trap but would not go in while Mama was up there. When I opened th back door it scampered back inside.
Unfortunately the mom squirrel knocked the trap off the roof and it's damaged. I need to fix it or get another. I'm 99% sure their is only one left. Once I get him I'll cover the hole with a cloth to be sure and seal it if they're gone.
The little ones are coming out and hanging around on the roof so they're almost weaned. I'm sure it (they) will be back out to look for food.
