  • i know that guy… been chasing him around the woods for awhile now… fast lil’ booger

  • CrystalMikey

    Nice pic!

    • Love that photo! Thanks.

  • PumpkinMuncher

    Little buggers love to deface jack o’lanterns. Any truth to the tabasco sauce deterrent?

      Nutty was chewing up everything in my shed, so I used this home depot critter spray (smells a bit like pepper spray) and it just made Nutty even angrier. There is no defeating them.

      • Tabby_TwoTone

        I carved an Obama jack-o-lantern four years ago and they ate his face.

    • Malaka

      Nope Arlington Squirrels like ’em spicy!

      • WeiQiang

        Are Arlington Squirrels here legally?

        • Malaka

          Probably not – I suspect they came here illegally and this accounts for the recent sightings of coyotes.

          • WeiQiang


        • Ballston

          The black squirrels are from Canada in 1902. I believe that after fleeing the zoo grounds many of them had anchor pups so they couldn’t be deported.

  • BoredHouseWife

    I had heard that wd-40 deters them.

    • nom de guerre

      And peanut butter mixed with baking soda sends them to squirrel heaven.

  • Josh S

    What makes that guy “evil?” Seems like a regular squirrel, minding his own business, chewing on an acorn.

    • Hank

      He has a murderous look in his eyes. Besides, that’s not an acorn, that’s a human ball.

      • WeiQiang

        He’s just having a breakfast knosh and you’re harshing his nuts, bro’. Do the d’bags ever sleep? /parody

      • EddieJordan

        You gotta harvest your nuts!

  • Garden City

    All squirrels are evil and if it wasn’t illegal to discharge a firearm within county boundaries…..

    • DCBuff

      No kidding. (squirrel scampers by as I’m typing this, taunting me)

      • Garden City

        I’ll bet he stopped to munch on/dig into your pansies on the way by.

  • Sherriff Gonna Getcha

    Guess Washington Post has noticed the decline at Eventide also. Surprised to not see RTS on there tho.

    • CW

      Sietsema jumped off the Eventide ship about a year or so ago.

    • Mc

      Sad Arlington restaurants don’t rate better. Big disconnect with our status as having highest per capita income.

  • Arlington cat

    Any photos of Arlington skunks? Oh wait, nevermind…….

  • OldYeller

    Hey, where’d he get an Elevation burger at 9am?

  • Tabby_TwoTone

    You know what that squirrel is saying?

    I’m getting as fat and furry as possible, bro’, because this winter will be a doozy.
