Come to my back yard, I have 10 running around at all times. When I go out on my patio they just look at me like "you gonna feed me" but when my Schnauzer goes out its "RUN FOR YOUR LIVES"

If you cook the meat to 300 deg F. the lead will melt away and the meat will be save to eat. My family has known this for years. Lead is only dangerous if you don't handle it properly. If you think the squirrel has been contaminated with mercury you have to boil the meat for 12 hours. The mercury will evaporate. Living in the back country can be tough untill you know how.

Once in a house by the sea lived a little couple with a little girl name Lisa.Her parents did bad things to her.They hurted her even though she was a good little girl.Then one day her mother told her to clean up the whole house without eating any food for the whole day.Lisa cleaned up the whole house without eating any food.One day when Lisa had her free day she wondered off into the forest by the sea.Her mom was cleaning up.Then Lisa went back home.Then when Lisa was in her bed sleep sombody had came and stabbed her and killed her.Her parents were sleep.The next day her parents found her dead and buried her.One day her mother had a baby that was a girl.Now she was not mean to her.She loved her.One day Lisa became a ghost.One night she was sleeping and Lisa floated in her room.She woke her up and told her that she is her sister.Then she told her that her name is Lisa too.She said that her mother had said that they were twins but one of us were a stillborn child.Lisa was shocked.Then Lisa soon began to get mad at her mother.I am your dead sis said Lisa.I and you have been death most fatal form she said.Your mother did me wrong.She is nice to you but was not to me.My mom hated me she said as she floated away.The next morning Lisa was eating.Her mom sat with her."Why did you kill her"?asked Lisa."Kill who"her mom said."Lisa"!she said back."Why did you kill her"? she asked."Then you name after me" Lisa said."Honey I - "You don't know don't you"Lisa said."Why would you do that, I wanted to see her so bad".I bet she was an angel.You should be put to death mom.And dad too.Lisa told me last night.Mom don't be a looneytick.I should call the cops...

What?!!!, there was no lead content in the meat, the test equipment was dirty. there is no way to know if the meat has lead. it is beyond unlikely the game animals will contain lead. as for mercury, from what, they don't swim in the ocean and logging has'nt used mercury for thirty years. lead WILL not melt out of contaminated food products. mercury WILL not evaporate. cook squirrel similar to rabbit or chuckar and it is great. mr 100 proof needs to drop to 80 proof for a spell and sort out fact from urban legend.
