Those Squirrels

It turns out that Jeff Cooper, in his commentaries from 1994, warned us about those squirrels. This is an entry from Coopers Commentaries Vol. 2, No. 13:

Sign reported by Clifford F. Thies in Rocky Mountain National Park:

“Please do not feed the squirrels. If you feed the squirrels, they’ll become overweight, and prone to disease. Their population will grow, and they’ll lose their ability to forage for food on their own. They will expect you to feed them and will attack you if you don’t. They’ll become like little welfare recipients, and you wouldn’t want to do this to them.”
