Save Beloved Neighborhood Squirrel from Being Murdered

Target: Councilor Norman Adams, Mayor of the Royal Borough of Greenwich

Goal: Don’t allow friendly neighborhood squirrel to be killed by pest control.

A friendly squirrel might be murdered as pest control has been called to kill him despite most local residents wanting to save his life. Cyril the squirrel has become part of the community at the Royal Arsenal Riverside residential estate in London. Local residents have dubbed him “the friendliest squirrel in the world,” feed him hazelnuts and greatly enjoy his presence. However, some people have reportedly complained about him “hiding nuts in their pot plants” and have called pest control to remove and kill Cyril.

Local residents are outraged at this proposal to kill their friendly neighborhood squirrel and have banded together to refuse this “assassination ultimately paid for by us residents.” They have told media outlets that “to lose him would be a great shame” as he brings joy to the neighborhood and “is so friendly and lovely that you cannot not smile when you see him.”

Sign this petition urging local authorities to take action to save Cyril the squirrel from being killed by pest control.


Dear Councilor Adams,

Residents of the Royal Arsenal Riverside residential estate in Woolwich have banded together to ensure a friendly neighborhood squirrel named Cyril is not murdered by pest control. This animal has reportedly become part of the community and “brings joy to the neighborhood,” according to local residents, who also call him “the friendliest squirrel in the world.”

Pest control has apparently been called to remove Cyril after complaints that he was burying nuts in someone’s pot plants. This innocent act is not worthy of a death sentence for this friendly and cherished animal.

Please ensure pest control is not called to remove or kill Cyril the squirrel, as the animal is not only innocent but is now a beloved and integral part of the community.

  1. Those so called humans who are worried about their Pot plants are being messed by this sweet squirrel must be ashamed of themselves. OK I have a suggestion to them, so when you people die one day make sure the loved ones will place your beloved Pot plant in your coffin to go with you. It seems to some Morans the pot plant is more important than another innocent vulnerable sweet animals life.

  2. These repulsive animal hating scumbags who want this lovely squirrel Cyril killed, need to be forcefully permanently removed from the neighborhood. If gorgeous Cyril is killed then all hell SHALL BREAK LOOSE!!

  3. The only “pests” here are the stupid old geezers whose hearts have become so wizened that they can’t even enjoy the sacredness of wildlife, and the losers who work in “pest control”! THEY’RE the ones who ought to be wiped off the face of the earth, NOT dear little Cyril, who’s busy bringing JOY to so many who CAN appreciate all he has to offer!! Let the complainers put their shriveled brains to good use and place some ROCKS over the soil to keep Cyril away from using his burying instincts (a self-survival tool, you idiots!) on your precious plants. Gawd, what a bunch of heartless DUMMIES!!!

  4. let cyril the great squirrel live now.

    The fault lies with residents who encourage Cyril with nuts. Because of this Cyril has become tame and will hide the extra nuts, which is part of his behavioural pattern, to save food for hard times. If the residents put a skirt of paper around the plant to cover the earth that the plant is in then Cyril is unlikely to bury his nuts in them. Simples.

  6. I cannot believe that people are that uptight about a sweet squirrel in pot plants. Take your energy and put it towards something really important. For example… fight for companies to stop using pesticides before we ALL die from cancer. There’s a thought!

  7. The only pest I can see in this story are those ill bastards making such a decision……
