The Squirrel






Category: BIRDS AND BEASTS.

Source: Welsh Folk-lore

Hunting this sprightly little animal became at Christmas the sport of our
rustic population. A number of lads gathered together, and proceeded to
the woods to hunt the squirrel. They followed it with stones and sticks
from tree to tree, shouting and screaming, to frighten it on and on,
until it was quite unable to make further progress, and then they caught
it. The writer, when a lad, has often joined in this cruel hunt, but
whether the squirrel was killed when caught he is unable to recall to
mind. Generally it escaped.
