I have a grey squirrel in my loft. I went up the other day and noticed some droppings and a nest made of chewed-up Scalextric cars. Left my old laptop up there with a webcam program running on it and got a picture of the furry little bastard.
What's the best way to deal with it? I'm considering sending the cat up there to sort it out, but I'm not sure how successful that would be and I'm worried she might catch fleas or other parasites.
I've read that if you use live traps it's illegal to release grey squirrels once you've caught them. Apparently you're meant to "dispatch" them with a blow to the head? Not too keen on doing that, so I'm wondering what the alternatives are.
