I hate squirrels.

20 people from Mtn. View signed the petition out of 850? If you don't live in Mtn. View, you really should not be part of how we remedy the problem.
I no longer take my son to Cuesta because of this problem. I would consider taking him back IF the City of Mtn. View was allowed to capture the squirrels as the Department of Fish and Game suggests.
What would those 850 petitioners say if a child (who was being watched by his parents) was scratched, bitten or hurt by a squirrel? I can imagine the response..."You guys made the problem so too bad."
The bad thing is that I have seen parents (myself included) trying to get their infant away from an aggressive squirrel who is intent upon finding food even when there is none available. This is a very dangerous situation.

Hello-you do not have to LIVE in Mountain View. Many people work in Mt. View and also visit there. Not to sound harsh but if this was the view that we only care about our "own" area what kind of a world would we live in? We need to care not only for the animals but also the people all around the world. If people would follow rules and not bring food into the no-food area the innocent animals would not try to feed. It is like placing a bone in front of a dog and expecting them not to beg.
It is a sad situation for all involved. I just hate to see any animal killed and even more so any child injured. thanks
