Who Eats Squirrel?

In addition, toxic waste and pollution may affect squirrels. In 2007, the New Jersey Department of Health and Senior Services issued a warning against eating a squirrel, especially for pregnant women. The reason for this was a squirrel found near the Ringwood Mines Landfill in South Jersey. This landfill had a history of illegally dumping toxic waste and had contaminated the food for years until the authorities cracked down.
