Evil skwerls, part 2974

Now the little vermin have found a way to prevent us from consuming their tasty bits: they're contaminating themselves with lead.

New Jersey To Ringwood Residents: Don't Eat The Squirrel
A letter sent out to residents said that children should not eat squirrel more than once a month, pregant women no more than twice per month, and adults not more than twice per week.

Members of the Ramapough Mountain Indian Tribe have been hunting deer and squirrel in the woods of Ringwood for years -- it's a tradition fathers pass down to their sons.

"It's scary because after we've eaten so many squirrel, rabbit, deer and what not, we come to find out they're contaminated," Roger Degroat Sr., a Ramapough member tells CBS 2.

Other hunters are now concerned because they've been eating squirrel for some time now. They're worried the contamination may have began a while ago. "After eating lead after all these years, we didn't know it and then they come up and say don't eat nothing," said Jack Walker, an avid hunter.
Dadblasted varmints. They're always finding some way to get out of being useful.
