Animal cruelty is always wrong. Shame on everyone involved. Too many squirrels? Too many assholes with guns is more like it.

Well said, Samme!!! There are moral idiots who apparently can't let the poor animals live undisturbed in this planet and have to go out of their ways to blow them apart for any reason whatever.

The Holley (NY) squirrel massacre, as covered by my blog, The Greanville Post, founded by perhaps the only politically left animal rights activist, Patrice Greanville, who was also one of the first editors of The Animals' Agenda in the late 1970s.

Sorry but the reality is that squirrels are the no.1 cause of transformer's malfunctioning(exploding) in many cases. This results in power surges that fry your home electronics not to mention the house fires squirrels cause by eating into the wiring in the attic's and wall's of homes. They really have a taste for it. By reducing the squirrel population the fire department probably saved a few homes from burning and maybe saved some human lives?

These inbreeds taunted the peaceful demonstrators, shook dead squirrels at them, drove through the crowd with vehicles decorated with squirrel corpses and encouraged their children to carry and flaunt dead squirrels. This shows the ignorance, total disregard for living creatures, and the sick depraved mentality of the townspeople.I thought places like this only existed in movies like "The Hills Have Eyes". The entire town and the mayor and especially the fire dept. should be deeply ashamed...

The entire town and the mayor and especially the fire dept. should be deeply ashamed at what they have done and what they have showed the outside world. No doubt we will be seeing a lot of the future serial killers this repulsive community has bred. I am disgusted and ashamed of Holley and all who participated. May karma visit this sick little town and destroy it. What a bunch of depraved, sick, murderous inbreeds they all are. SHAME on the fire chief and mayor-they had the ability to stop this bloodbath but chose to defiantly increase the number of tickets sold instead of opting for a non-violent alternative. Violence is never the answer-why can't they have a junior firemens olympic competition instead, or something like that, and encourage the young people to compete with their (obviously small and defective) brains and good sportsmanship instead of a blood soaked free for all against tiny, defenseless and harmless squirrels?

What the fuck? that makes me so mad- egotistical, inbred, self righteous pukes. I hope they all end up shooting eachother in a freak hunting accident.

This is so disheartening. I simply don't get how taking the life of a creature can be considered 'sport.' Sad indeed.

Can someone start a petition to stop this event from ever happening again? I do not have all of the full contact info. These people sound like disturbed hillbillies with the iq of a rock..,,

Oh, those brave, brave hunters. Squirrels certainly are dangerous and menacing animals, aren't they? So, are they also holding a "squirrel feast"? After all, "you killed it, you eat it" used to be the rule among hunters where I grew up. Waste not want not, killers.

So terrible - to think that this Holley Fire Department thinks it's SPORT to kill innocent squirrels - it's animal abuse - there is NO excuse for it and the taxpayers who pay these idiots were not listened to when they protested the shoot. The Fire Chief who allowed his immature employees to proceed with this killing ought to be fired. I thought it was against the law to sponsor anything that involved money when you work for the City? Apparently this Fire Chief thinks he is above the law....

Apparently this Fire Chief thinks he is above the law. What kind of a town is this that supports killing for a thrill? Who is the Fire Chief'Who is his boss? Do they have a City Coun cil in that hick town? If so, the Council should fire this Chief and put all those idiot employees who thought it was funny on suspension! This really stinks for public relations and gives this whole town a bad name - what kind of unthinking, immature, people are in charge there that they allow this and think it's fun? They are all sick and disgusting. What are they teaching the kids in that community - that it's OK to kill defensless little animals?

Unfortunately, according to my information, the department is an all-volunteer force as the town (1800 people) is miniscule.
