Great to see you’ve go your permission in South Lakes. Squirrel burgers tonight! 🤔

Didn't have a knife with me to gut him, looked like a small rabbit though so probably plenty of meat on him

My understanding is that the females would continue breeding but only produce male off spring. The model would show that by releasing a few hundred gm modified males within a decade the breeding population of greys would be finished. Time will tell.

Could be quite dangerous for the reds, anything GM is highly suspect to me?

Because it is a genetic modification it is species specific. Reds and Greys cannot interbreed. Things are moving fast in the genetics world.

Agreed but still a suspicious old man.

If it works it will certainly solve the problem of the urban tree rat where nothing is done to reduce or eliminate them.  A City, maybe London in the Royal Parks would be a good place to start or any of the National Trust Stately Homes/Parks.
