Dunce Waits 2 Months To Get Permission To Kill Pesky Squirrel

By Robert Paul Reyes

"A local authority in the Stockholm area has taken two months to decide that a resident can kill a squirrel that has trashed his house."


The pesky squirrel has broken into the man`s house several times, and done considerable damage.


It`s mind boggling that a bureaucracy has taken two months to decide the weighty issue of whether a resident can kill a mischievous squirrel.

Its even more mind boggling that the resident has patiently waited to for the mindless bureaucrats to give him permission to kill the devilish squirrel. The man still needs to obtain permission from the police before he can dispatch the dastardly squirrel.

I wouldn`t wait for permission from clueless government employees (oxymoron?) before I did away with the annoying squirrel. As an animal lover I would have tried to make my house squirrel-proof, before I killed the stubborn squirrel. But if my attempts at resolving the problem with peaceful methods failed, I would kill the tenacious squirrel without waiting for any damn permission.

And you thought moron bureaucrats were a problem only in this country?
