Spokane parks to detonate squirrels

By Nicholas K. Geranios

The Finch Arboretum is being overrun by ground squirrels, and Spokane Parks and Recreation is bringing in some special artillery.

The agency is using a special machine called the Rodenator Pro to detonate some of the estimated 100 to 150 squirrels tearing up the grounds.

...

The Rodenator Pro pumps propane and oxygen into the tunnels of squirrels, then sends an electric spark that causes an explosion. The shock waves kill the squirrels and collapse their tunnels but in a humane way, the agency said.

Yeah. Humane. Right. Underground, you can't see them writhing in pain.

Makes instantaneous death via .22lr headshot seem downright barbaric... :rolleyes:

I am in the head shot with a .22 camp.


That said, the movie Caddyshack still has the right idea when it comes to strategy and tactics.

We keep tellin' folks the old movies were "gooder".

Seems like it would be pretty easy just to make one of these things yourself...

Get one of these for $20 with a propane tank and you've already saved yourself a couple grand. Now just go jam it in some gopher holes and hold the trigger down slightly for a while, then pull it all the way and boom, no more gophers.

Hilarious - sure, sure, as humane as "burning alive, then suffocating" can possibly be!
