First Cut - Squirrel Wars: Red vs Grey
Friday, 6th February 2009
7:35pm to 8pm
Paul Parker is a hunter. A hunter with a singlular mission: to kill every grey squirrel in Northumberland. Unfortunately for Paul, he's outnumbered two million to one by the little Yankee bleeders.
To licensed pest-control officer Paul, grey squirrels are recent immigrants. They came to Britain in the 1820s from America and their population has been multiplying ever since. The main losers in the squirrel wars have been the British red squirrels, falling victim to a deadly squirrel plague whenever the greys move into their patch. It seems that Britain isn't big enough for the both of them.
The headquarters for Paul's mission are the offices of Lord Rupert Redesdale in the House of Lords, who runs the Red Squirrel Protection Partnership. This funds Paul's quest to rid Northumberland, home of the Redesdale estate, of the entire grey squirrel population. But how will this one-man elimination team, armed with a rifle, a camouflage jacket and a few traps, fare in a county of 1.2 million acres? And what happens when Lord Redesdale's squirrel war fund starts to diminish, leaving Paul more alone than ever?
There's also a rather good New York Times Magazine article on the fight to rid the country of the grey invaders.
