Parenting skills and Dead Squirrels


Interesting utube vid here about a little girl and her dead Squirrel.

Now, the parents are all "oooh honey, what have you got?" I get the impression they want to not upset the child by taking it away and would rather cajole her etc, or at the very least have some good youtube stuff;)

Me, I'm in the camp of put the freakin dead rodent down and get in the damn bath and don't touch the damn things again.:laugh:

At least he tells her no more touching etc by the end so I guess he handled it quite well.

I recall a story from the early 1980's where someone in the US contracted bubonic plague having come into contact with squirrels at a picnic. The squirrels had the fleas that were the carrier of the plague.

I thought it was quite sweet. She is obviously too young to really comprehend such things.
If I was the parent I would probably perform a little burial for it, involving the girl, and say about putting him to rest as he's gone now to a nice place where all the squirrels go, and put some small flowers on the spot.
I always used to bury my pets in the garden and put flowers on their grave when I was young.
